On Sunday July 26 2009 the Hamiltion area got slammed with a little bit of rain. And by little bit I mean record breaking amounts!
Sarah and I were scheduled to take engagement pictures at McMaster University at 2pm. We went to church at 11am and figured that we would have plenty of time to get ready between noon and 2pm. Going into church we could see dark clouds on the horizon but figured the storm would pass when the service finished. I was wrong!
We walked out of the mass and it was pouring like I never seen it pour before. Walking across the street we got drenched. The drive home was slow and dangerous and I knew then that the pictures were cancelled. We stayed at my house watching the rain in my garage for another hour before it finally slowed down.
The street was like a river. The hail looked like it was hitting a lake when it fell. The gutters and sewers couldn’t handle the deluge. Fortunately for us we didn’t sustain any damage and life goes on. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for others. I guess thats what you pay insurance for.
I have pictures in my gallery here, and I hope to have video edited and posted tonight or Wednesday.
Check back then.
