you know its march...

when you get it all in one day. the weather i mean!

spring in alberta can be a challenge at the best of times. ok, who am i kidding? its a challenge year round!

so i get up this morning, and its rather blah, grey, cloudy, and only 0C out. head out to work a few hours later, and i couldn't see much of anything on the highway. why?? oh, only a blizzard of sorts, lots of lovely fluffy flakes. by the time i arrived at my destination 45 minutes later, the wind had died down, and the roads were basically wet and sloppy. the sun was trying to peek through.

when i left a couple hours after that, the sun was shining brightly, the snow/wet was gone, and it was quite beautiful out.

fast forward to 4pm. looked outside at my pathetic dog. standing in the HAIL that was coming down!! not big summer hail, but small pellets. opened the door to let him in, and it was thundering out! what the heck? its march for goodness sake!

and now, 3 hours later, its again sunny, albeit cool.

welcome to spring in alberta!

LOL - laughing is all you can do in Alberta. Edmonton had a beautiful sunny day. Funny eh?! Definitely can't wait for the summer.
