After the Great Toronto Flood of ’13
On Monday, July 8th, late in the afternoon, it started raining… and raining… and yeah, a lot of it came down. Toronto got hit with a record downpour. It overwhelmed the city’s infrastructure, and caused serious flooding in many neighbourhoods.
The only way I was affected was that I was stuck in traffic. Â My “Great Toronto Flood of ’13” story is kind of boring, but at least I was luckier than many others whose cars and properties were damaged, or who couldn’t make it home in time for dinner because their train was underwater! Â I came away with one decent instagramÂ of my suffering.
Thunderstorm warnings continued on days after the initial flood. Â The skies were pretty dramatic then.

The technical name for these clouds are Mammatus Clouds. Â I just think they were pretty freaking cool.
