On Monday evening, July 10, 2017 hail pelted Montgomery Place and other nearby communities. Unresolved drainage issues from the storm can be directed to the 24-hr phone line at 306-975-2486 or reported to Councillor Hilary Gough at hilary.gough@saskatoon.ca or call 306-717-4533.

Some farmers used to call hail storms “The Great White Combine.” After the July 10 storm, it’s easy to see why. Montgomery Place residents lost fruit and berries, gardens, rhubarb and flowers. Coniferous and deciduous trees were strafed by wind, hail and lashing rain.
