Prairie Landscapes: Clearing storm and the end of winter?

Winter has been mild here in southern Alberta this year.  We had a short blast roll out of the mountains in the middle of the week with snow blanketing the city.  That seemed like a last gasp as it lasted only one day and melted before the weekend arrived.  It was an interesting run of weather that finished with a wind storm and warming that reached 15° C on Thursday.

These images are from my afternoon drive out of the city with the storm still attacking Calgary but open skies above me in Springbank west of the city.

For March, the prairies have very little snow.  Makes for a bit different mid-winter landscape images than previous years.
