Here are the craziest pictures & videos from Alberta’s wind storm yesterday
Well, we hope that you’ve managed to hold on to your hats Calgary because yesterday was a gusty one! As most of you know, Alberta was issued a wind warning early Wednesday morning and since then, people have gone wild on Twitter.
From toppled semi-trucks to runaway BBQ covers, it’s safe to say that this ABstorm is yet another not-so-gentle reminder that Mother Nature is in charge here.
Here are some of the craziest pictures and videos that were posted by people throughout Alberta yesterday.

Thanks to everyone who shared pictures & videos of this wicked #ABstorm #SKstrom. Barometric pressure low enough to rival a Nor’easter!⚡️ “Dangerous wind, snow and ice set-up disrupts travel on the Prairies” by @weathernetwork https://t.co/xL8NLpipcZ — Chris Murphy TWN (@MurphTWN) January 13, 2021

Wowza. Luckily the wind warning has since been lifted, and no one was hurt! It’s been unreal, friends. Please stay safe, stay smart, and stay inside! It may have calmed down out there, but it’s still a force to be reckoned with!
