Hi Saskatchewan gardeners .Hope the weather I'm seeing on the tv is not at anyones backdoor. In Thunder Bay we have had torrental rains - roads washed out, malls and their parking lots under a foot of water basements flooded with water and sewage( one report said a "sister woke up at 5 am got off her bed into water up to the top of the bottom mattress" Gardens are flooded+++++. WE are up on a hill on the north side of Thunder Bay so no water in our basement yet! started raining again now and is to go on till Wed grrrrr. I was complaining of not having the vegies in-rototilled and then it has rained over the last 2 weeks has kept us out of the dirt. maybe I'm luck as at least our seeds and transplants are not under water. Take care everyone Lois

RE: weather

Wow sounds like our July here last year. We were up all night bailing one night so our sump wouldn't overflow. Water was rising and the power was out. Hopefully you are high enough to avoid disaster. I guess it worked out that you didn't get the garden in :D

RE: weather

I was checking out pictures on the internet this morning - amazing! My son was working on 102 and i'm wondering if he had to go in today. Is there any flooding on the north side at all? My parents are on Court, at the bottom of a hill, of course!

RE: weather

Wow, I really hope this year doesn't turn out like 2010 again :(

RE: weather

Marcia Our home is up from Court on the hill but so far there's no water as far as my neighbours are concerned, so hope your parents will be ok. The pics on under their facebook shows several roads etc with h2o damage.Lois

RE: weather

It seemed to be mostly on the south and east sides, and in rural areas. I saw lots of pictures! Quite the thing!
