I told a shocked listener yesterday that I was hoping for snow this visit to Canada. You know, so my kids could experience it.
I got what I wanted. I forgot to specify that I would like it to not dump more than 28 cm in a single night on a weekend I intended to travel by car.
I would still be in Edmonton if it weren't for my dad catching a ride with a cousin who drove out a day early in order to catch a flight and then driving us back through absolutely horrible road conditions. They closed the highway just after we got through. We passed more than 55 cars in the ditch in 141km. Slick roads, white out conditions.
But I was going to go to Calgary today. Today it's Calgary that has the weather warnings. Of course. We are caught in between. Perhaps I should have stayed in Edmonton longer to visit. Except, the whole city was under snow so not that many people were going anywhere anyway.
So we wait for the snow to clear a little, and the wind to die down. And I remember how crazy it is to someone who lives with it half the year to wish for snow.
We have had a lot of fun though. I have many pictures to share once I get home and can upload them.
