Winter has arrived in Calgary

posted on 16th of december, 2008

Winter has finally arrived in Calgary (Canada). We had a pretty warm November, and it was starting to look like winter would never get here. Then we got a huge dump of snow. It was the great snow perfect for building snowmen and packing snowballs. The temperature was around zero so it was still warm enough that the kids could have a good time in it without getting frozen fingers and toes :)

Winter really set in this weekend! The temperature dropped below -30C at times, and wind didn't make it any better. It really makes me appreciate my home when I spend a lot of time indoors. It is nice to be 'forced' to spend some time around the fire with family. We had our piano tuned and are all ready for the grandparents to arrive for Christmas next week.

As for photos, I admit I don't head outside when it is this cold. I've started spending more time going through old photos looking for suitable images. Aside from being fun to look at the older photos, I tend to come across quite a few that I either missed or just put off to process in the winter.

Above all - I love the fact that we get all the seasons here in Calgary.
