I facepalmed when the videographer said "look at the size of the hail" ... over a pea sized hail .. out here in Alberta we get them anywhere from plum sized to golfball sized lol

Also wouldn't the title "Weird storms in Ontario Canada" suit it better? as the rest of Canada isn't included in the video ? (just a thought)


Yes those are very impressive storm clouds, and I wouldn't be caught out in them lol. Unless someone paid me to .. that's a different story xD

Beryl


Tornado from remnants of Beryl destroy homes in NC
Tornado spins off from Tropical Storm Beryl remnants on NC coast; 3 homes destroyed


www.consumerelectronicsnet.com...

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) ' The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl spun off a tornado that destroyed three homes and damaged dozens of others near the North Carolina coast Wednesday as the system sped toward the Atlantic, authorities said.

Between 40 and 50 homes were damaged near Peletier in the western part of Carteret County, said county Emergency Services Director Jo Ann Smith. She said there were no reports of injuries.

Many homes suffered only minor damage, but three were destroyed when the winds came through shortly before noon, she said.

Cape Breton Here.

First off, you guys may be used to large hail out in the prairies. But it's definitely not common out east, and I'm in the Maritimes. Having spoken to family and friends in Quebec, large hail isn't the norm either. Keep in mind that the video is focusing on a completely different region than yours. Alberta is not the only part of Canada.

And on that note, the reason that the thread says 'Weird storms in Canada' is because that's the title of the YouTube video. Not the poster's title, they're just keeping in with the ATS posting guidelines. Also, Canada is not hugely represented on ATS. As such, articles with any Canadian content usually just say or refer to Canada, instead of provincial or regional differentiation as we're otherwise used to.

I could go on, but it would devolve into a rant about Albertan attitudes towards the rest of Canada. Not only am I trying to give you the benefit of the doubt and not stereotype you, I'm also trying to rise above the divisive rhetoric being bandied about the country.

I.E. "greedy" old vs. "entitled" young (Quebec protests/youth unemployment), "lazy" East vs, "arrogant" West (EI reform/dutch disease), etc.

Been in NB for years now, only saw hail once so far. Nothing major though, about the size of large marbles. I am right on the ocean here. I seen golfball sized hale in NY multiple times.

Exactly! Something for those out west to keep in mind, should they choose to travel east. It may prevent them from unduly judging others as overreacting.

(Not saying the other poster necessarily was, just the facepalm combined with the lack of context kind of irked me.)

I tend to keep an open mind when it comes to being Albertan, and about the rest of Canada, but sometimes I do get a head of myself, as the post mentioned. Guess I could use a bit more knowledge on how the Eastern and Maritime provinces are. When I wrote my reply to it, It went right through me as to the actual title of the youtube video, my apologies.
As for the stereotypes, each region has their own faults and are arrogant in their own ways, I have seen it in my travels across this great land. It would be better if every one of us Canadian saw what the rest of us saw on the other side of the country.

It was warmer in some parts of Ontario last couple of weeks than it was in Tampa bay Florida. The effects of the ice age are still occurring. The frost and ground in north america is rising yearly from the depression left from the massive mile high ice sheet which covered the majority of North America.
