April snowstorm

Well, this morning we’re getting a totally unforecast snowstorm, and the snow is coming down faster than I have ever seen in Calgary. Currently we have 4-6″ on the ground. This should give you some idea:

Env Canada say:

City of Calgary
8:13 AM MDT Thursday 10 April 2008
Snowfall warning for
City of Calgary issued

10 to 15 cm of snow this morning.

An intense and very localized snow storm has positioned itself over Calgary. Amounts of 10 to 15 cm can be expected before the snow tapers off later this morning. Areas just to the east and north of Calgary may also receive amounts of 5 to 10 cm.

They’re not kidding. šŸ˜‰

  1. Yep, severe winter weather here in South Dakota…blizzard warnings called off but still severe weather warning thru tomorrow night.

    But then a week marked by some 60F highs and spring seems to be on the way.

  2. Oh, back again…big red cardinal is out working the bird feeder, despite the weather. Yeah, Spring is on the way!

    Spring on the prairies is always interesting šŸ™‚
