|This Alberta winter is by far the craziest in a long time. And looking across Canada it is not any less crazy other places, even though in a different way.
Yesterday Edmonton temps reached 6C (43F) and good was that as I was busy replacing the rear window in my van. Today, however, temps are going down to –7C (20F)
While we needed high boots to splash through the puddles we need skates today to make it along the curbside. And the half-frozen slush is hardly negotiable, even Molly got stuck in it. While Calgary, only 2hrs. south, has no snow at all, it just started snowing again in Edmonton.
And speaking of snow: While the Maritimes got pounded again and people are digging tunnels to their entry doors, people in Vancouver can still admire flowers blooming. Ontario may be the only area being “blessed” with a normal tough cold winter this year.
Since a Canadian winter can be so awful, I have decided to fight it with some nice summer pictures of our favorite spot: CAMPOBELLO ISLAND
