Default Rank Flooding in Saskatchewan

So during the winter we had like a record amount of snow across the province. All this snow rapidly melted when we had a stretch of nice weather for a couple weeks, this melting caused insane flooding all over the province and many communities are in a state of emergency. Ontop of all the this flooding we just got shit on again last night with 4 more inches of snow. I found some pictures on the internet of the Qu'Appelle Valley/River. I am driving through these areas today on the highway to go to Saskatoon. Worst flooding since 1974.

This is farm land in the valley.


Farm land and the highway I am driving over today.


Snack shack in the valley.


Heading into Craven area. The area you see that looks like a lake is actually where the Craven Country Jamboree is held (huge campsite and drinking fest with live country singers like Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, to name a few)


This is actually in the Jamboree site.


Entrance.


Thats just some areas. I will update this thread with some pictures I take while driving today and tommorow.

Terrible stuff hopefully the worst is behind and things can start to dry up and don't forget the air intake for the engine is just behind the passenger side headlight

Wow that sucks man, we've been getting rain here and snow has vanished sooner than usual, so no problems this year.



That being said, the area looks nice if you overlook the floods.





And now i'm sorry.






I'm sorry but this made me laugh, so please don't hate me..
