Default Freak September Snowstorm Blasts Calgary

Everything in the first photo melted the same day-THIS fell the following
overnight. The snow was VERY wet and extremely heavy, (temp 0C) you can see
the tree on the right starting to bend. That's nothing, a local botanist
estimates 100-200 thousand trees were severely damaged because all still had
leaves and held the snow. Some areas had every tree destroyed. Also
thousands without power for various times (including me) as falling branches
and trees took down power lines everywhere. As of Thurs night most snow has
melted except on west edge of city at higher altitude-where I live. Still a
few inches on my deck.

Default Freak September Snowstorm Blasts Calgary-Aftermath-6 images

Now a week after the snow, temps back above normal (25C here) some tree
shots in a park. Multiply by several hundred thousand to get an idea of
what happened. Cleanup expected to last in to next year-about when repairs
to riverside parks and the zoo from our flood of 6/2013 are also done...
City says up to half million trees just on city property damaged.

Yours seem to be blown over in the massive gales I've read about, ours were
crushed under the weight of wet snow. But yes, the results are the same.
