With everyone’s attention on the weather today, I thought this might be a good time to take a look at the predictions for this winter from the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
This forecast is for the Prairies: “Winter temperatures will be colder than normal, with the coldest periods in late December, early to mid-January, and early to mid- and late February. Precipitation will be below normal, but snowfall will be much greater than normal, with the snowiest periods in mid-December, mid- to late February, mid- to late March, and early April.”
As Henry mentioned, Alf should have an easy time finding good snow for his September ski. I hope he was able to keep his streak intact over the summer. If he did, it will be an amazing 156 consecutive months of skiing. I’m getting excited…we’re only six weeks away from the opening of Frozen Thunder at the Canmore Nordic Centre, and about two months from our first ski trip to Moraine Lake road at Lake Louise.
