Environment Canada has a flare for the dramatic - Tornadoes are possible this afternoon and evening over portions of the central grainbelt. Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms with the potential to produce tornadoes. These severe thunderstorms will also have the potential to produce very large hail. Flooding rain. Deadly lightning and powerful winds.
One of those horrible, rainy, and blah afternoons - I want nothing more than to pack everything into my car and drive home, spend the next four months working a crummy barrista job (saving every penny), and then take eight months to backpack around the world.
