Ah & all you folks that don't know what its like around here. A week & a 1/2 ago it was 32 celcius here (thats over 90F y'all). This is the type of flucuation that we are forced to deal with sometimes weekly LOL (even though not funny!). Like Invicus said its supposed to be nice for the weekend. Don't let any of those west coast pussys (like Jeff F. LOL) scare ya away from the Calgary show. The snow is Mother Natures way of showing us she is ready for a Reptile Show. Afterall it wouldn't be a Calgary show if we didn't get snow the week of it. LOL I can see blue sky out there now so all we need is for the Sun to crank it up & it will be 20 C again, but for how long LOL Mark I.
P.S. the rain & snow was actually a GODSEND to put out all of our nasty forest fires finally. I bet Tim & Julie B. are loving the weather as should all of the people in the fire zones.

Well, that’s bad. Now the Americans are really going to think that we have snow all year round and that we live in igloos… But here in Montreal it still pretty hot, it’s about 23 C or 73 F. For us Canadian, there is nothing special about it since we all know that we have a big country with deferent climates. Let me make a comparison for my American friends, if there’s snow in Vermont that doesn’t mean there’s snow down in Florida…

But I’m still going to get my dog sled ready just in case…

Geez it's been into the 80's and 90's here (like 26-32C)

I think they said something about triple digits coming up again, which we just got over less than a week ago.

I wish it snowed here PERIOD. We have to drive 2 hours for snow. Hardly even any rain for the past few winters

Yeah, the thing about Calgary is that you can experience all four seasons in the span of a week. I'm sure this'll be gone by the weekend. *L*

Do us a favor and keep it all there, I don't want any hitting Montreal. Odd we aren't very far away from you and we still don't get snow till mid November or so.

The sun's almost trying to shine right now. The yard is getting green again. Ah crap! Now I'm gonna have to mow the lawn again!
Revenge is a dish best served cold...

With a side plate of steaming entrails,
And a nice Bordeaux!

I remember a few Christmasses ago we were eating lunch outside because it was 23C, and I'm pretty sure it was 28C on New Year's, 7 days later. Calgary weather is crazy!


Oh, and usually we don't get winter until February-March. The heavy snowfalls are March-April, and we had snow until June this year.

I am with Linds on this one. I don't want to think about another Canadian winter.

Its soooo hard going from 20 years of California weather to dealing with Canadian winters. Its sooooooo depressing. The thought of snow, well actually the temps that come with it, actually makes my stomach curdle.
