Woke up to this.... this morning....

But should be back to summer before the end of the weekend. Next week should be camping in the Crowsnest Pass.

We have had tons of snow in Calgary, we 10" of accumulated heavy wet stuff on our roof. Lots and lots of broken trees. Some roads were impossible to drive down with large branches strewn across them. Wild stuff.

Shorts and t-shirt weather this weekend though, go figure.

Wow, snow in September. I couldn't hang. 90s here and won't really cool off until October.

This is very rare. Heck, the leaves on the trees were nowhere near turning yet.

Fortunately, the forecast for next weekend looks very favourable for our 5 day canoe trip high up in the Rocky Mountains.

Good point, and the leaves are the reason for all of the tree damage that has occurred, as the leaves hold an enormous weight of snow. We have had the same problem several years ago with an exceptional May snowfall, after the leaves were all out.

It's also too early for crops, with most of the grain not harvested yet and the snow causing degradation of the grain and huge losses for some farmers. As one farmer said in a TV interview yesterday, they don't need to go to Vegas to take risks.

Decided to take cover somewhere with power (Cody Wy) for a couple days till this is past. Got about 6" (15cm) so far.

The trailer works great down into the 20's (-6C) with our little electric cube heater running.

Bob,
That's quite a testimony your cube! What brand and model is it? Thanks!

Not too hard to decided who's back window I would sooner be looking out of, Greg's or Bob's? Hot fish tacos or frozen steak?

Nice to have a great cozy trailer to camp in for either location though.
