Update 7 p.m.
At least 15 cm has fallen in my back yard. It’s stopped snowing for now, but the forecast is calling for more overnight. Good-bye pine needles!
Canmore 9:00 a.m.
Enjoyed shoveling my deck for the first time in 6 weeks. It’s also nice to look out in the back and see the spruce trees laden with snow. We’ve had about 4 – 5 cm so far and it’s still coming down. It’s cold enough at -3°C that waxing shouldn’t be a problem, as the snow isn’t too wet, but if it warms up to the predicted +1, all bets are off. Once the tracksetters are able to do their job, we should have some wonderful skiing for the near future, as temperatures are remaining below zero. They’re grooming the trails at the Canmore Nordic Centre as I write this.
