    @Coopsy I am always snap happy. I take a ridiculous amount of random pics and post a few of them on here or Facebook, I get a lot of comments about the snowy pics.

    I even take pics at night while I wait for the dog to empty himself:

    I’m not surprised about the snowy pics - there’s something quite emotive about them. For me especially the nighttime snow pics. I think it’s the juxtaposition of the white and black. I’m prone to taking many random snowy pics too...

    It's still fairly cold at -19C but you can't fault a sunny & calm day:

    After today it does look warmer here, perhaps even low single digits later this week. Having said that we may see some snow tomorrow night so winter isn't going too far away just yet.

    Class pics. 
    Do you like the climate over there? 

    If I had to leave Scotland (I won’t, my sister lives in Australia - just not for me) then Canada would probably be top on my list. Certainly want to visit! My friends rate it highly

    I've loved the climate here so far, even the mild weeks in January were great as it was so sunny every day. Once winter finally leaves in a couple of months I've got a relatively hot summer with thunderstorms to look forward to. My ideal climate is basically this climate.

    The mountains in the background are an amazing backdrop, I'll need to get a decent zoom to get some decent pics.

    ask again in 11 years..thats how long i have been here..first winter was fun and a great experience..now they just grate on me big time..winter starts far too early and finishes way too late..summers and autumn i like but they are too short..spring is very hit and miss..talking of which i have seen a few years where spring and autumn do not appear at all ..we can go from winter str8 into summer and vice versa summer str8 into winter..happened in 2012 and 2018

    Hovering around freezing today. Almost tropical. Wet roads and slow melt going on in the sun. It definitely feels busier in town - with certain restrictions being lifted it certainly makes a difference to towns that rely on the domestic tourist dollar like Canmore and Banff.

    A pic from our friends in Northern Indiana where my daughter stayed until Covid forced her home last year. Just a few days ago here we had the same depth of snow as them at around 35cms. Since then though they had the big storm which brought low temperatures and another foot of snow while ours all melted bar the remnants of a pile or two.

    We were in Banff over the weekend, the weather was OK but quite dull and flat for decent pics. I'm not sure I liked Banff as much this time round as it was full of people 🤣

    We're supposed to get some rain turning to snow later, it could really end up as anything knowing the way the weather goes round here.

    We had thundersnow last night in the midst of a fairly heavy spell of snow which dropped a few inches in a few hours. So much for the rain which was forecast, it was all snow or graupel.

    More thundersnow is forecast for later today:

    By Calgary standards so far this winter it was the heaviest snow I've seen. Most of our snow has come from slow-mo snowy snizzle but not 'proper' snow.

    No, I missed that which was a shame. The vids of it are amazing.

    We were on the edge of the band of snow last night so missed out. Not to be outdone this cloud decided to pretend to be lightning:

    It bodes well for a summer of cracking thunderstorms that we've had this in winter. If you look carefully at the cars round here there are quite a few covered in dimples from last summer's mega-hailstorm 😯

    We've lost a lot of snow cover in the last 24 hours with a combination of melt and some small scale drifting. Some of the drifts are feet deep so yes I had to have fun jumping in them. I love the soft but firm feel of drifted snow...weird but yeah.

    We have more snow forecast today with anything between 2cm and 10cm in the local forecast.

    Yesterday:
