The stormy weather this past few days has been scary enough on the ground, but Health Minister Dustin Duncan found himself up in the air in the midst of it Tuesday evening.
Duncan was flying from Regina to Saskatoon just as the storm was hitting.
He says the sky to the west clearly looked like something big was happening.
"It was like a wall of like a blue cloud that turned into a haze," said Duncan.
He thanks the pilots for finding a route that kept them safe and out of danger, but he describes some of the journey as pretty hairy.
It may not have affected production too heavily but a fire at the Co-op Refinery Complex on May 15 is still proving costly.
The fire department has determined that the blaze began in a pump used to move crude oil. The pump suffered a mechanical failure, which caused it to overheat. That set the crude oil on fire.
The blaze was small, but it created heavy, thick black smoke that was noticed throughout the city.
An autopsy has been ordered on a 38-year-old man's body found in Regina Tuesday.
The man was found in a home in the 2800 block of 5th Avenue just after 8 p.m. yesterday.

EMS vehicles are being fanned out in Regina should the city face some damaging weather Tuesday night.
If a twister hit the city, the Regina Qu'appelle Health Region doesn't want to get caught with all its eggs in one basket.
EMS's Cory Brossart says some spare ambulances have been moved away from their central facility on Albert Street and into community stations. He says the odds of the headquarters being decimated by a tornado or severe weather are low, but they don't want to leave anything to chance.
The Roughriders have another tough decision on their hands.
On the weekend, the team released defensive back Lance Frazier, now the question is who will take his spot on the field?
"You got to find more than one person," said defensive backs coach Barron Miles. "You have to find two or three guys to fill that role."
One thing is for sure, Miles and the entire coaching staff want fast and athletic players in the secondary this year.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders are changing the rules when it comes to practice.
A letter, signed by head coach Corey Chamblin, was given to fans as they arrived to practice Tuesday morning.
