saw that on CTV. Quite a dumping. A buddy in SK said he had close to 40cm. Good old fashioned prairie storm. 

backbreaking work shoveling all that snow..esp Sat as a lot fell as wet snow in the morning as the temps dropped it flipped into dry powder snow..so it was really heavy to shift..Sunday was better as much of the powder snow had blown into little drifts so was easier to clear.

I find November and April are the back breaking months for shovelling. As you say when the colder air comes in you can literally blow the powder off the drive. All good exercise I guess.

Not sure about you but I find 6 months of snow quite tedious at times, but when it’s early season, extreme or a good snowstorm it’s much more interesting.

67cms has been my 24 hour record - that’s was an interesting day in May

Metro Vancouver was under a snow fall warning of up to 10cm’s. It looks largely like there was only a few cm’s, other than some places with elevation and further north. 

I read that it was the earliest settled snow for metro Vancouver since 1984. Not sure how true that is though.

Nig Sky looks to be open today the lift is running but there's not a lot of snow, I thought next weekend was the open weekend, but it seems as though they might have gone early, the snow water creation cannons are on in an effort to build upon the base layer..

After weeks of fairly standard weather there’s a wind warning today/tomorrow. Up to 130km/h (80mph) in favoured spots with a very strong chinook. This always brings warmer weather and temps have recently started to rise. Up to 7oC at the moment.

I think I'm right on the edge of that warning at my new house 😀

The flight over was awesome with a bit of a bumpy landing coming into Calgary. I have no idea where this was:

I'm at Rocky Ridge so in Calgary but closer to Cochrane. I got my negative virus test earlier (less than 24hrs) so I've been out and about this afternoon at Glenbow Park:

Nice pics. I know the area - I pass that way when going from Cochrane to Calgary via the 1a. Great sunsets over the mountains from there.  

Good news on the neg test - saves you two weeks of rcmp visits. Lucky Calgary airport is doing that pilot.

A nice run of weather is looking like setting up for a lot of Alberta. Possibly a week or more of sun and above freezing temps. Feeling warm in the sun and maybe double figures in favoured spots by the weekend.

The sunset was gorgeous as well:

@Coopsy I am definitely going to be lulled into a very false sense of security with this mild weather.

Fantastic pics. I have a feeling you’ll have a large file of sunset pics before the years out. Wait for the northern lights. 

Yes I think you will be. I remember family coming over to visit for the first time during a chinook saying ‘oh I thought it’d be colder.’ Within a week it was minus 20. Lol.

Have you got any plans to go exploring the province?

It’s been an autumn of extremes from the record heat of October to record cold and now back to the heat. Don’t pack away the summer wardrobe just yet

@Coopsy you'll recognise this place:

20201202_125039.thumb.jpg.ab9d577662facb882b647d996de9227b.jpg

I ran out of superlatives earlier.

Ah nice - just to the left of the engine bridge. Great view of Ha Ling and EEOR. (Ha Ling is a great hike)

Funnily enough that’s my prime fishing spot. Hope you like Canmore. Being a local I prefer it to Banff but thankfully all the tourists go to Banff 😁. And you got the sunshine for your travels

Canmore was gorgeous, we didn't stay for long but I am sure we'll be back for another visit at some point. We're heading up Sulphur Mountain later this morning then back to Calgary. Canada is incredible.

I agree - It’s hard not to fall in love with Canada. Once it’s under your skin that’s it. Glad you liked Canmore. Enjoy sulphur and the views. And the hot springs if you go there. I hike sulphur a lot. Great in the summer too.
