    Don't kid yourself though. Even though we weren't directly hit, those losses in other parts of the province/country WILL eventually have some percentage of an affect on everyone's premiums.

    Possibly. But I got a discount after clarifying with my insurer that I have a very good condition roof, recently reshingled, and that are stated to be more weather resistant (probably bs but anyway) and all stucco exterior. 300bucks sliced off from what I otherwise paid.

    In anycase I'll buck if our rates are going up due to the oversights of others. If some other idiot builds on a cliff, floodplain or "high River" or Calgary it shouldn't be my problem they are idjits

    Edmonton has far far less weather claims than Calgary. That should be reflected, regionally. If not I walk to an insurer that does factor something like that in. Or I change to increase deductible for some things that are rarities here.

    But my car insurance is up. Gotta ask about that. lol, don't even know if I have hail coverage. I don't even care about the vehicle anymore..

    Classic video from the famous storm of 2004 that flooded and closed WEM.

    Millions in insurance claims in Edmonton.

    In the business for 30 + years, so I have an opinion.:D
    Yes, Calgary and area will (continue) to have their rates/coverage/deductibles reflective of what is going on there, but the total losses incurred will also be somewhat absorbed into the entire province down the road. Just the way it works.
    And new roofs, or certain types of roofs, can indeed generate some nice reductions in premium, which is why you got a discount. And all the companies factor that in.

    The #1 rule in insurance. The losses of the few are absorbed and paid by the premiums of many.

    I still love the comedy bit Chris Rock did about insurance. Said it should be called "incaseshit" instead of "insurance" because you need it in case shit happens.

    Drove by a forming funnel cloud yesterday afternoon in North Dakota west of Fargo. It was right in front of me. No I did not stop to take pictures.

    Pretty sure my heart rate matched the truck's rpm

    That storm that flooded out Brandon a couple days ago, I got caught driving through the heart of that storm around 5 pm. That was one of the heaviest rainfalls I've ever seen. That cloud was bloody scary to look at when I was approaching it

    So is 2020 weather going to repeat 2019. Looks like a lot of rain for awhile.

    Thought there was already one county that the farmers said they were going to lose 25% of the crop as they couldn't seed. Could be another rough harvest.

    Have you been able to find new employment? IIRC you lost your job during the early stages of the pandemic.

    Thanks to the government subsidy they brought us back part time. Thankfully.

    I remember back in 2002 when there was major concern shown towards the drought issue....fast forward years later every year since then has produced more precipitation.

    2002
    293 mm total for year

    2020
    288 mm for just first half of year.



    Drought disaster of 2002.
