I’m sure many of you saw this tweet that GNN linked up with on Wednesday about snow near Calgary. Don’t get out the parkas just yet. Give it another six weeks or so.
That photo was taken on Hwy 22, near Longview, Alta. From here at Cottonwood, if I went west, it would take just over an hour to get there.
It was a lot different here on Wednesday, although it wasn’t much like the summer we’ve experienced this year. On Tuesday night, about 1:30 a.m., pounding rain woke me up.
We had a lot of rainfall Wednesday morning. It was about 11 C and windy and we had so much rain that this place turned into soup and we cancelled about everything going on that day. At times, it looked like sleet.
I heard that some of the higher elevations had some snow and you could see some of the patches on the radar.
What happens so often is that you’ll have a little bit of a cold front come through and if the winds are going the right way, you’ll get a little precipitation, but not to worry, it isn’t a sign of an early winter, at least not this early.
In early September, we’re still green and good. Let’s hope it stays that way for as long as possible.
