So, after the remarkable, nocturnal thunderstorm yesterday, I spent some time scouring social media for photos and video. I found a winner.
Local mom Jocelyn Froehlich took a picture of the school bus that was stuck in the wet and slushy hail on her street. I asked for her permission to share it. It went viral.
The photo was shared by thousands of locals and people across the country and last night, Jocelyn posted this:
"Going viral....before I'm yesterday's news, I have to post about how crazy the last 24 hours have been. After waking up at 3 am to shovel hail, I went back to bed and woke up to assess the damage. When I looked down the street I saw my Goldenglow neighbours assembling to shovel out a school bus. I took a quick snap to capture the moment....Within a couple hours the quick snap plastered the internet. It was picked up by CBC, CTV, The Toronto Star, The Weather Network, Global News, DiscoverMooseJaw...Premier Scott Moe, The Leader Post...and many more...I'll remember today for the rest of time," she said.
If you haven't seen it yet, Jocelyn's photo is on DiscoverMooseJaw.com today.
Oh, it's interesting to note, there was some skepticism yesterday. Some didn't believe the photo was real. One guy called it "fake news". It was real. He doesn't know. We know.
