Had to go and work for the day to earn this, but I am so glad for how it turned out that I feel it was very much worth it!
Calgary weather is funny.
It really hasn’t changed a bit since I was younger. We live near a mountain range, which can cause weather shifts with very little notice.
We’re also far north enough that a strong arctic wind will carry down to us. Even in the spring.
A couple days ago, for example, it was +22 Celsius outside. Girls wearing shorter skirts, Men wearing shorts and sandals.
I laughed when I saw it. This is why.
Had a great time, did not take nearly the same amount of pics as previous years, but here are a couple of the good ones:
We went so long without cold weather, and without precipitation of any form, that it seems people forget where we live.
I watched a SHAW truck almost take out my car because he kept pinning the accelerator, which just makes more ice under your tires. (Oh truck 4556, one day you’ll learn the hard way)
It’s not really all that cold, but the wind is a bear. Most of the impressive piles of snow are a result of the wind instead of actual accumulations.
We’re staying home and letting the fools of the neighborhood plow the routes clear. Some pictures:
