|The Saskatoon Exhabition happens each year in August and you can almost bet they will be some of the hottest days of the year. This year it was especially hot on the day we went to the EX and met up with Nana and Pompa. One thing about extreamly hot days on the praries is they are sure to end up in fantastic evening thunder storms. The lightning storm that night was tremendous and you can get the picture from the shot above in the center. That picture was taken just before they cloesed the midway and everyone ran for cover.
