Brianna van de Wijngaard's vegetable fields were under water last weekend, forcing her to harvest some crops, while hoping others survived.
Brianna van de Wijngaard spent nearly seven hours pulling crops out from under water last weekend.

Hundreds of kilograms of broccoli, kohlrabi and cabbage were placed into a little boat, floating on top of a metre of water in her one-and-a-half-acre field.

"I just went down there and started cutting the vegetables that were ready. The rest of our crops aren't ready yet, so I couldn't do anything about those," she said.

Van de Wijngaard owns the aptly named Puddle Produce Farm in Soda Creek, B.C., located near the Fraser River, which has been breaching its banks and causing flooding throughout the region.

Shocking footage has emerged of the moment when Ivan Zaborovsky, of Znamya Truda in the third tier of Russian football, was struck by lightning during a training session in a freak accident that hospitalized the teenage goalkeeper.

The footage of the painful incident shows Zaborovsky running up to take a shot at an empty goal during the warm-up while his outfield teammates train nearer the edge of the pitch in the foreground.

With no-one around him, the 16-year-old is suddenly seen being engulfed by a puff of dark smoke as he approaches the ball on the edge of the penalty area.

Zaborovsky was transported from Orekhovo-Zuev to a hospital in Lyubertsy, where he is continuing to be monitored.


Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: This is how you will access food in the future

Cuba is asking residents to grow food anywhere they can as supply chains into the island nation are cut off from many inbound points. Cuba grows food or they don't eat. Covi Passports will be required to enter supermarkets and stores in corporate America, this will have a monthly cost and have a bar code to scan to verify your test. This is led by a consortium of businesses in the Covid Credentials Initiative (CCI).



The Andes - "Experts say it has never snowed that much" - Over 13 FEET deep


Las Leñas, Argentina
The Andes continue accumulating snow, up to 4 meters (more than 13 feet).

Unfortunately for skiers, time does not understand pandemics. The Andes are receiving perhaps record-breaking snowfall just when ski centers are closed due to Covid-19. There are few clues as to whether they will finally be able to open. (I say 'perhaps record-breaking' because my translator said it was 'anthological' snowfall. I'm not sure what that means.)

Nonetheless, Cerro Catedral Alta Patagonia has detected groups of people who skipped the ban and went skiing anyway.


Spectacular tornadoes rip through western Minnesota - At least 1 dead, 2 injured

At least one powerful tornado damaged farms, left one person dead and two others injured in western Minnesota as severe storms moved across parts of the Midwest, authorities said.

A 30-year-old man was killed near Dalton when a twister destroyed a large garage in which he was working Wednesday evening, said Otter Tail County Sheriff's Lt. Keith Van Dyke.

Two others suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a hospital, Van Dyke said. He did not know where or how the two were injured.

At least three farmsteads were hit, and one of those farmhouses was flattened, said meteorologist Vince Godon with the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, N.D.

There were reports of other tornadoes and weather service ground crews were working to confirm that, meteorologist Daniel Robinson said Thursday.

Much of Alberta experienced turbulent weather on Tuesday night and a mother from Brooks said she was frightened by a funnel cloud next to the highway her family was travelling on around the same time a tornado alert was in effect for the area.
Several funnel clouds were seen in the sky on Tuesday as powerful thunderstorms made their way across parts of central Alberta, and at least four were confirmed to be tornadoes.

According to Environment Canada, "a brief tornado was observed a few kilometres north of Brooks" just after 8 p.m., in the midst of several advisories and warnings.

No damage was reported, Environment Canada said, but the weather agency is asking for people to send them any photos or video of the funnel clouds or any damage they caused.

On its website, the weather agency also said it confirmed a tornado west of Trochu at 7 p.m., another west of Acme at 5:45 p.m., and that yet another twister was observed east of Keoma at 5:07 p.m.

The deaths have taken place in Begusarai, Bhagalpur, Munger, Kaimur, Jamui and Gaya.

"Seven people were killed in Begusarai district and one each in Bhagalpur, Munger, Kaimur, Jamui and Gaya districts," a government spokesperson at Bihar Chief Minister's office said.

Over the past two weeks, more than 150 people were killed in similar strikes in the state.


Ice Age Farmer Report: THE ZOONOTIC THREAT: Into the smart cities with you! - The "Biodiversity" lie & Agenda 2030

ice age farmer
The UN seeks to remove humans from 30% of land and inland water, and considers this "even more important than climate change!" A narrative is being crafted with COVID-19 to justify forcibly moving people off the land and farms, into the smart cities, in the name of "habitat" and "biodiversity." It may sound reasonable, but what does it REALLY mean? Total control. Christian breaks it down.

NASA has shared an image of rare 'red sprite' lightning that looks scarily similar to an alien invasion.

The red lightning can be seen branching out like jellyfish or fireworks over a French mountain range.

The amazing image was captured by photographer Stephane Vetter.

Nasa revealed it as there Astronomy Picture of the Day for July 4.

Nasa said: "A sensitive video camera on a summit of the Vosges mountains in France captured these surprising fireworks above a distant horizon on June 26.

"Generated over intense thunderstorms, this one about 260 kilometers away, the brief and mysterious flashes have come to be known as red sprites.

Comment: Last month more giant jellyfish sprites were recorded over Europe.

With the surge in sightings of red sprites in recent years (which are still considered 'rare' by some) it seems the electrical nature of our weather and changing atmosphere is becoming more apparent: For more, check out SOTT radio's: Behind the Headlines: Earth changes in an electric universe: Is climate change really man-made?

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - June 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

Sheets of rain, floods and hail left a path of destruction all over the world, and the northern hemisphere still got snow in June.

The unbelievable amount of precipitation during the past months can be explained with the increasing amount of charged particles in upper layers of the atmosphere.

When meteors and meteorites pass through our lower atmosphere, or when our planet goes trough a comet dust stream, charged particles accumulate between the ionosphere and the surface of the earth causing storms to intensify, clouds to grow and more rain to fall. Wildfires and volcanic eruptions, for example, also contribute to this accumulation of particles.

At the same time, rain can conduct the accumulated electrical charge of the ionosphere to the ground, which increases the occurrence of other electrical phenomena, as tornadoes, hurricanes and plasma formations.

The accumulation of charged aerosols and increasingly colder temperatures in upper layers of the atmosphere - caused by the current solar minimum - can also be responsible of the increasing amount of hail and unseasonable snow around the world.

Charged particles influence weather much more than has been appreciated.

Heavy rain and raging floods took the life of hundreds and affected millions in south China, and destroyed 1,470 houses and 3 bridges in Gorontalo Province, Indonesia. Heavy floods also hit Assam, India leaving 16 dead and over 253,000 affected.

While Romania got its second coldest day in June, Montana got more than 1 foot of snow and southeast Wyoming got 6 inches... just at the beginning of summer.

Siberia got a share of extreme weather this month, from tornadoes to floods and extreme temperature swings.

A 7.5-magnitude earthquake rattled large swaths of southern and central Mexico, killing at least five people. No major damage was reported.

Locusts continued to ravage Africa, India, Brazil, Argentina and the Middle East, with no sign that they'll be gone soon.
