Snow day, snow play

A storm hit southern Alberta yesterday and laid down the first thick blanket of snow in Redwood Meadows.  Early October always feels too early for winter to come but this should melt in the next day or so.  My children are not ones to miss an opportunity so they were outside as soon as the howling wind had eased a little.


First snowfall on the Prairie

After a warm weekend where we crested 25°C, winter jumped out of his hiding place and threw snow down overnight.  The weather report calls for rain by this afternoon and then warming up to 17°C by the weekend.  It would seem that this is a short reminder of what will come.  It would be nice if autumn held on a little longer – we’ll see.
