Wintry Driving Conditions Just A Tad North

I had to re-check today’s date, but the calendar confirmed that we had May 5 – 2015. I was watching the morning news and there was the weather guy, who in his nice humorous mood tried to sell us the fact that we are looking at  another return of winter for May 06. From today’s 20C (68F) we are gonna race down to tomorrow’s single digit temperature of 4C for the city. But looking just a tad farther to the north people will see 10-15cm (4-6”) of snow!
Now that is a real bummer when most people have already rigged up BBQs and garden furniture outside. Indeed, over the last 3-4 days trees have sprouted green leaves just about everywhere. Every time we experience another come-back of winter we hope it’ll be the last for the season, yet mother nature has a surprise for us.

As crazy as that might seem, it is not unheard of in this province. Talking to old-timers, we learn that snow has graced this country in every month of the calendar.

Enjoy the weather!

  1. When we lived in Alberta, we never planted or booked camping until after May long weekend and even then, we have camped in snow. It has even snowed as late as June and have seen snow in August one year.
    Ah Alberta. You don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes.
