A small digression here - we're not going to debate or discuss my sleeping habits.
Alberta has THEE most messed up weather on the planet, and Edmonton in particular is super messed up. We have spans of 40 degrees between the highs and lows on some days, we get floods, snow, tornadoes, and droughts. We dress in layers for anything from a blizzard to a heat wave. The saying, "If you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes," is only partly said in jest. If you don't believe me, ask a meteorologist - apparently people come from all over the globe to study the peculiar weather patterns in Edmonton.
Which brings me to this post. After playing slip-n-slide on two wheels on the bike ride in to work this morning (the skating rink from last night's rain in the Bonnie Doon parking lot was a special treat, I assure you) and coming home wet as a drowned rat and looking like the victim of a drive-by mudding, I was treated to sleet and lighting. Yes, that's right - sleet, and lightening. In January. In Edmonton. Did anyone else witness this?
