Some pretty hefty winds for Alberta! :blink:
Not common, but not unheard of.

I saw some news video of this.
In particular a couple of passenger jets trying to land in the strong cross winds.
One pilot had so much 'crab' on his aircraft he must have been looking out the co-pilots window.

Certainly an interesting day of weather...... :blink:
