Raindrops are falling on my head! Hiding under an umbrella is Yvette Gaudet, salesclerk at Macleods Store, Parkland Centre. The store suffered a flash flood on Wednesday morning when a frozen drain pipe broke on the roof resulting in water covering about half of the floor area. The store was evacuated for a short time while the damage was repaired. An undetermined amount of damage to school supplies and novelties was recorded.
