We interrupt our ocean sunrises for a Spring update ....
Posted By: daacon, 03-21-2013, 06:40 PM

These shots were taken .... today - the backyard this morning, the rest just a mere 45 minutes ago - Welcome Spring !

click on image twice for larger view

The rather stoic look on my face is a direct result of this being the second time today I had to shovel and the snow is till falling


The backyad is more prestine but deep snow still


The highest peak we'll call it an even 7 feet.


The top of the sticker on the basketball pole is about my shoulder height


ugg it's not that cold (for us) but today has been brutal with the snow (up to 21cm in some areas). Weekend getaway planned ! (assuming the highways are clear ....)

There's nothing quite like spring in Alberta, is there? Well, except for spring in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and probably antarctica as well
Generally not this bad - but when it's bad - it's bad - it has been warmer up in the Yukon and the Northern territories than here last week.

I'll trade you my 200 foot driveway here at Alberta Beach for your 50 foot in Sherwood. Just finished 3 hour job by shovel no snowblower, definitly next winter though. Hopefully we're done with the white stuff for this season.

Wow, that looks like a lot o work Dave! Somehow I'm not sure if this global worming thing works
Twelve month ago we could sit in shorts in the garden, this night we expect -10°C (that's 14F I guess).
Take care

Lot's of work, for sure, old buddy. All those decades I lived up north, late season snows would send me into despondency; I would get so tired of winter. Down here, I get the same feeling when it's mid-October and we're faced with a week of 100-deg (37C) days.

Thanks Jim we were in Banff on the weekend - much less snow than hear and warmer (except for the Mountain Peaks of course) you might be good to go.
