For the past few days, the local stations have been predicting the possibility of some wet snow today (Monday). This, naturally, gets me quite excited. All weekend long, the air felt as though snow was imminent but it just didn't materialize. When I woke up this morning, I bounded out of bed, kicking cats and sheets aside, grabbed my glasses and threw open the curtains. Since I wake up around 430/500-ish each morning, I couldn't see a whole lot. However there was just enough light from the streetlamps to see the ground was wet and looked lighter than normal. Grabbing my camera I ran out onto the balcony. Thank goodness for cameras with a flash...


I know it's not going to stay. Heck, it'll probably be gone by the time the sun finally drags its lazy head out of bed but it still makes me happy. And yes, Calgary beat us yet again by experiencing a bit of a blizzard over a week before us but I don't care. We have snow and that's all I need right now.

You westerners have all the fun. I once made a fly fishing trip to Alberta in October, and while fishing the Crowsnest, we enjoyed a storm with 6 inches of snow. It was OK wading in the water, but walking on the banks in wet waders turned us into yeti. Fishing is always good though, and in this case the catching was pretty good too.

You are welcome to bragging rights to all the snow this winter, if you like. I won't mind.

It snowed in my village too when I was there. In fact, it had snowed so much the previous week in Misurina and when we went up there the wind was blowing so badly that it was lifting the snow from the meadows as if it were a tornado!
