Winter hit Alberta in a big way yesterday, and heavy snow blanket’s southern Alberta according to the cbc report.
Strong winds and anywhere from 15 to 25 centimetres of snow was in the forecast for Calgary Sunday, and another five centimetres could fall on Monday. The Calgary police were advising motorist to stay off city roads because of dangerous conditions. I took their advise seriously and stayed home to get a few things done! This image was taken last winter, looking south on highway 21. It had been a cold and windy day, the storm brewing on the horizon.
we have glass globes hanging on the back deck, the view down the street is upside down, it is quite interesting to watch the season change through the glass. This weekend I noticed frost on the glass globe one of the prettiest views through the glass I have noticed in a long time. I grabbed my macro lens to capture a few images.
I hope you are staying warm.

A winter storm warning has been issued for our area, read further and you will see that the meteorologist are suggesting that we might get between 2 – 4 cm of snow. I am not sure if 2 – 4 cm of snow is so much snow that we need a “storm warning” after all it is winter in Calgary, and part of our lifestyle, sweeping snow off the car.
It will be a great day for pictures if I can find time from work to get out there!
Yes Karen and Jon I am finally finished editing all your photos! you can see more of those images – but not all of them on my flicker site. We need to find time to meet so we can go over all the photos together.
