Not if you saw the *&@$%#@! weather we are getting! Major blizzard over the weekend and the highways are either closed or only recommended for essential travel.

Bizarre weather here this time of year -- last weekend we had sunny weather and it was in the mid-70s (23 C).

Yeah, sorry to hear about you guys getting hit like that. I posted yesterday about how nice our weather is and then I heard about Calgary. Felt a bit guilty about bragging when you're hurting. I guess we'll get that weather in a few days.

Actually, I prefer to get big dumps of snow this time of year. At least if it comes in April, you know it won't stick around long. If it comes in December or January, that's when it hurts.

Glad to hear you guys are getting some nice weather. Hopefully this storm plays itself out before it gets very far to the east.

Beautiful weather here today. I was out on the patio at my folks place, did a bit of a bbq and got all the fly gear cleaned up and fitted out for the season - trout starts next weekend AND the spring steelhead are finally in the rivers!

What could be more fun than a carload of piglets on a Sunday afternoon?

Driving with a carload of piglets and a HB between your legs.

Last weekend I was out brewing in balmy weather and this weekend we got our blizzard. A foot of snow on the ground a half hour's drive away from me. The Trans Canada highway was closed to the Ontario border and various other highways closed around the area. My highway to town wasn't closed, but it was a skating rink. Today it's completely clean and dry.

Springtime on the Canadian prairies.
