Snow… already?

It was 27°C (81°F) on Sunday in Bragg Creek and we enjoyed a wonderful summer day.  Monday was an altogether different story.  It dropped to 0°C (32°F) overnight and freezing rain turned to snow before noon.  By the afternoon the fields towards Calgary were white and in Redwood Meadows, the tree boughs were weighed down by a thick blanket of snow.

The forecast indicates that this unseasonal (though far from unheard of in these parts) weather will not last long.  By next weekend, we should be over 20°C again – here’s hoping!

  1. Well, you sure beat us to the snow. You know Christopher, if we pass by your way again, we should go do some photography together.

  2. Two stunning shots! Snow is beautiful. Just have to ignore all the winter complainers.

  3. I think winter is going to come early almost everywhere this year.
    Here in NY, our leaves began falling in mid-August, and I am sure that that’s never happened before.
    Your snow sure made for some wonderful images though, Chris! 🙂
