April snow

Taken yesterday at -9c with a northerly wind making it nice and chilly. On Friday it was 16c, warm and sunny. Such are the vagaries of life in Calgary, though this Spring has had the most extreme swings that I can remember.

    Pretty wild weather you have there! It was haevy frost last week, sunny and high 70’s today. Ah, Spring! Flighty but lovely, when it isn’t raining! 🙂

    We do have lots of flowers and trees blooming now though, probably a little bit ahead of you there?

    Blessings to you this Easter Weekend, Jesus love, joy and peace!
