Mother Nature, You Confuse Me

Tuesday, November 17, 2009
Today is one of those days where I just don't understand. Today is one of those days where I'm about to say something I never thought I would. Today is one of those days where I sympathize with the weather man/woman. Yes, that's right, you heard me. Enjoy it while it lasts because chances are, tomorrow I'll be complaining about the weather forecasters once again.

When I returned to my desk after lunch today, I glanced down at the Weather Network icon on my computer screen and almost had a heart attack when I saw it reading a whopping +17C. No, that is not a typo. Edmonton nearly reached 20 degrees. On November 17. Not Edmonton, Kentucky; Edmonton, Alberta. The Great White North. WTF? Wait, it gets more interesting. Jasper National Park, a mere 3.5-4 hours to the west of us got whalloped over the past few days with a tonne of snow. Granted, the park is in the Rockies so the elevation adds to the amount of snow and lower temperatures but holy smokes. It's practically summer here in the capital and a few hundred kilometres away its practically white-out conditions.

Someday, I'm sure it'll get cold here and we'll get snow too. Sigh. In the meantime, I just have to dream.
