The jogger really picked up the pace when this wild storm came up out of nowhere. We were shopping in Sidney, a town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, when we noticed the sky turning black, thunder rolling and lightning flashing. Thunderstorms are very rare around here so we hastily drove down to the seawall in time to catch the blast as it swept in off the Strait of Georgia. A few seconds later and the deluge came and it was like sitting inside a car-wash!. We could see people out walking their dogs and getting soaked to the skin. On the way home we even encountered slushy snow on parts of the road. A really unusual combination of weather!
