Autumn didn’t last long in Calgary

Yesterday Mother Nature hit Calgary with snow – records breaking amounts of snow dumped on Calgary. I have talked to many who spend hours in traffic.

I wandered the streets and park pathways. Okay, I will admit that it is nice not having a full-time job downtown, I get to choose how I spend the day, and yesterday I choose to go for a walk. Yes, it was hard walking through the 10 plus inches of snow. But it was also very beautiful. Especially when I walked into a section of the pathway that had just been cleared by the city snowplow. Along the walk was a thin sheet of soft snow and ice, covering the leaves. I felt like a three-year-old who had just found their first leaf!

I know kinda crazy, right. But they are beautiful, so many shades and patterns, colors enhanced by the wet snow. I know walking through the snow, and photographing the leaves isn’t for everyone, but I had a great day.

How do you spend your time when you have a snow day?
