Here is a beauty of a photo from the National Geographic website. Photographer is William Albert Allard.

It shows a charge of American Bison through the snow of Yellowstone National Park in winter.

All the best to my readers and commenters.

Only in Canada? No Way

White House winter

No this is not the Great White North, better known as Canada, this is the result of the blizzard over this past weekend. Here in Calgary only small amounts of the white stuff remain from earlier storms.

Those in the Mid-Atlantic region hit by this storm have my sympathy.

Winter in Calgary

My Neighborhood this weekend.

No wonder my American friends call us the Great White North. We had a major blizzard hit this past Friday and it lasted all weekend. A city of over one million brought to a stand-still. Along with the snow came the cold weather. Last night the overnight low as – 29 C. Today we’re having a scorcher at – 21 C. It took me two hours to get from my suburban home to the office in the downtown core. The usual commuting time is 35 minutes.

Snow Somewhere Else Besides Here

ColoradoSnowSept2009Living up here in the Great White North – Canada, I always enjoy seeing somewhere else get that early snowfall.

So for all my American friends here is a photo of snow in Colorado on September 29th.

Here in Calgary, Alberta it is getting cooler but still well above freezing and definitely no snow. Unfortunately my time will come, but in the meantime I have this photo to show it could be worse.
