Hey..I lived/live on the other side of the bridge .....if the new bridge hadn't been finished ahead of time...a lot of people would have been SOL.... I can remember going out just behind...my building ..basically next door which used to be bush and is now a soccer field...anyway....what is normally a trickle..I guess starting around Park..continuing thru the Fish Bowl... was then a place that people were canoeing down.... ask me if that was a little scary...

Oh wow. Thanks for the photos Sweetthing and Fotogal. Brings back memories. Unfortunately I didn't take any pics of the flooding but I did take some of the huge amounts of snow we had in 1996 and 1997 as well as skiing in May. I remember we had a huge snowstorm right at the end of April.

If I can get my scanner working I'll find those pics and post them.

[font=Comic Sans MS]Damn near......but I certainly have to give Timmins Transit a great deal of credit. They really did their best. Naturally they took the new bridge....the early mornings weren't too bad....you generally made your connections. But coming home was really bad. The drivers were sooooo patient. It took about an hour or so to get from the transit building to home for me. I remember several days when the weather was extremely hot and the traffic was bumper to bumper. The bus was like an oven.... and of course there were one or two morons on the bus who couldn't stop bitching. I know one day I got fed up and told them to shut up and stop complaining.....they were lucky to be able to get home at all!! And if they didn't like it, why didn't they get out and walk. (I'm SUCH a bitch sometimes!) Then of course you had some of the motorists who I'm convinced were brain dead....cutting in and out of traffic.... squeezing into some of waiting lines....it was unbelievable. Good thing I wasn't driving a bus...I would have run right up their asses. [/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS]It certainly was an adventure. [uhuh [/font]

Remember when we had a snow a few years back on Canada Day?? They had to cancel the truck pulls in Cochrane...

Yep that was July 1, 2001. Also the official opening of the Shania Twain Centre. That's the first time in weather recorded history in Timmins that there was snow in July. It was in the afternoon too which was interesting as there was a bit of ice pellets and and a few flurries mixed with drizzle. I remember seeing on the news that in Cochrane there were big snowflakes coming down and that truck pulling event was cancelled!

Weather records have been kept here since 1955. Does anyone know if it actually snowed in July or August before that?

I didn't think there even was any grass growing in Schumacher. It's all rocks and people park on top of their grass. [1laff
