Incredible Calgary...

I would like to write down about weather conditions we face here in Calgary. The weather is very colorful here. I do not remember that we have had a stable condition for several days continuously. During a week we may see the sun, clouds, rain, hail, thunderstorm. All of them can be seen in summer time. Now is middle of August and yesterday afternoon there was a storm in Calgary. To honest it was a first storm I have seen in my life, but looks like not last. I was so astonished that forgot about taking any pictures or video. However, people posted some pictures and videos in Calgary Herald's website.

First it started getting dark. And the downtown was invisible. 

Then I noticed that clouds are moving very close to the earth surface. I told to my boss (you know him as mmw) that it is storm. He did not believe first. But when we saw how the traffic sighs are moving there was no doubt that that was a storm...

Here is a video taken by student traveling at that time. You can see how the sign moves...

  1. Lamiya asked to post her comment as she couldn't do it herself. So her comment is
    "The bar on language proficiency should also be raised" - looks like Bow Valley College's administration took it to seriously: previous study-year was with CLB 7(in all four rows) for all certificates & diplomas, except pharmacist's diploma - it was CLB 8(in all four rows), which this year became 9(in all four rows) - astonishing! isn't 8 is a maximum benchmark? All others became CLB 8, except Early Learning & Child Care, which remained CLB 7 (and this is the only one which doesn't requers math knowledge). So, all that under-middle incomed immigrants can afford is to educate themselves for to end up in a childcare or preschool! And free-english-improvement programs for immigrants is dragging immigrants till they will get CLB 7 in four rows. Wanna improve till 8 - spend your own money on that... Or spend much more money in other post-secondary institutions, which are comforting with CLB 6,5 average or so.
