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.
All I can say is I am looking forward to spring.
