In my last full day in Canada yesterday, there was some dramatic weather just after I passed the town of Weyburn. I was enjoying a light if slightly humid tailwind when this monster appeared on the horizon:
As I passed under it I felt like a very small sea creature walking down the seabed with a huge wave breaking overhead. Here’s a video clip of that moment: under the cloud
I was expecting to get a good soaking because, surely, that amount of water couldn’t stay there for ever! But in the end it was only very light rain, and then i was out the other side into some sunshine and another striking scene:
As an indication of how flat it is here, there is a railway line between the yellow quinoa (a bio fuel crop) and the green road side grass.
Those of you following me on Strava or keeping an eye on the GPS tracker will see that I’m only 50 miles away from the US border – so I should be back in the USA by the end of today!
