Welcome to spring in Southern Alberta!
This was the scene we woke up to first thing Saturday morning. Our winter storm warning was no April Fool's Day joke. Or maybe it was. A cruel, cruel joke nature played upon us.
What you don't see in these pictures is that the snow is actually coming down. And it came down all. day. long. By the time it took a break there was more than a foot of snow on that bbq. A foot of heavy, wet, cold snow. Sigh.
But did that keep us hearty Southern Albertan hunkered down in our homes. Nope. I still went to the Wally Mart. I mean when one needs cleaning and laundry supplies, one needs cleaning and laundry supplies. That's just the way it is. And who let's a little winter storm warning stop them. Not us, if the crowded Wally Mart was any indication.
So today, I'm still looking at a bunch of snow on the lawns though it has mostly melted off the roads. I am so ready for spring! If anyone is on good terms with nature, can you please put in a good word for us! It would be muchly appreciated!
