It was inevitable and only a matter of time, before the nice autumn weather we’ve been experiencing in Crowsnest Pass would go south on us. After making it through October and the first half of November, without having to deal with much in the way of wintry weather, everything changed yesterday. Although we did get some snow in September, along with a bunch of rain and cool temperatures, the weather turned for the better and it’s been quite pleasant for the past six weeks. At the very least it made us forget what was to come, sooner or later. Now, it appears winter is on our doorstep.
I’d say we’ve had 3 – 4 inches of snow since Monday evening and the temperatures have dropped condiderably since the weekend. It was -12°C this morning. That’s downright nasty, when compared to the +12°C we basked in a few days ago. There are two words that begin with the letter ”W” that a lot of folks around here don’t like to say out loud. Wind is one … winter, the other. Ah well, c’est la vie.
It appears it’s going to be a while before warm temperatures return to the area. Hopefully, we’ll get a Chinoook before month’s end. We all know what that will bring with it, though … the other ”W” word!
