Have you checked in at the Weather Network recently? ‘Ever heard of an ice disc? Searching for reassurance that last (non)winter really did happen, this Alberta gal went looking for some perspective on the unrelenting (where are our Chinooks?!) chill of our winter, so far. The WN does not disappoint!
Visit the Weather Network here for a quick overview of 2016’s Top Ten Weather Stories. From Fort McMurray’s Fire Beast to Windsor’s “$100 Million Gusher,” Canada experienced it all.

|Tornadoes||Hail||Strong Winds||Heavy Rain||Total|
|30-year Average (1986-2015)||34||128||51||26||239|
