What a fabulous start to the week! We’ve had such a marvellous break in the weather in southern Alberta these past couple of days – a far cry from the wind and snowstorms of last week. Although we’re not technically under the influence of a Chinook, the bright sunshine and balmy temperatures have gobbled up the snow and I came back from my walk on Nose Hill this afternoon with my boots caked in mud. It felt positively spring-like!
I just wish I could somehow store this warmth for those upcoming days when it’s minus forty and blowing snow! Surely someone can create an app for that? 😉
What have you got going on this week? Any fun plans or new projects?
LOL, what a wonderful thought, an app to store the warmth and sunlight to save for the cold days ahead.
I think it’s a much-needed invention! 😉 Too bad my memory of the warm days doesn’t quite cut it when I have to go out in a blizzard.
You are so lucky with your weather down there. The snow here is still past my knees.
You were hit with so much more snow than we had here…at least there’s been a bit of a reprieve for you this week. I’m so behind on my reading…I noticed you had an entry posted about a winter walk you did, looking forward to seeing your photos.
Word on the street is another 30 cm of snow is coming end of the week. I hope they have it wrong!
I love the app idea! Could use one here. I am knee deep in thanksgiving preparations. My mom, sister and daughter come into town tomorrow and I’m looking forward to having them all here. No matter the temperature, it’ll be warm and cozy inside the house.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family! Enjoy your holiday!
If they do come up with that app, send it on down to us – we’re experiencing frigid temps far ahead of their time here in our area of the northeast US. And we’re getting strong winds, and heavy rain/snow for the next three days – UGH!
Oh, that’s not good…especially for those travelling for the holiday! Stay safe and warm inside and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I guess that one day someone will invent a way to store the warm weather! Although I suppose one can already record it and play it again when the snows come . Perhaps in 3 D 😉
3 D, indeed! I love it! 😉
Those unexpected days that are a relief from cold (or excessive heat) are such a joy! The temperature dipped to below freezing here last night; very early for us!
Wow, that does seem early for frost for you…how did your garden fare?
It’s good to feel a milder breeze after a freeze. We’re currently having some frosty weather at last, and it’s perfectly fitting as I will be putting up decorations for Advent this week. 😀
It is wonderful for you to have some “seasonal” weather for your decorating! Makes it even more special! Enjoy!
That app sound like an excellent idea. I wonder why all those computer wizards have come up with that? ;0) Hope you can enjoy the Chinook a little longer?
Yay, the Chinook is hanging on here – it has been spectacular!
I do think those computer geniuses should get on that app…I know there would be a lot of us using it! 🙂
Reblogged this on 20 Lines A Day.
If you find a way to store the warmth I sure hope you will share. Very nice picture! Hugs
I definitely will! 🙂
Sending all the best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Thank you! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day.
Well, of course tomorrow is the American Thanksgiving so we are getting ready for a modest family gathering. Happily the weather has gotten milder.
Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the day spent with your family.
What a great break…i think your snowy cold weather has come our way to stay.
I hope it’s not too wicked there yet…we’ve got a huge storm system headed our way, supposed to hit tomorrow night. I’m not looking forward to walking to work on Monday morning, that’s for sure!
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! 🙂
We got all hunkered down for the forecasted storm tonight and nothing happened. It’s now 2:15am and I’m thinking it might have missed us. Lucky you to get those chinooks. Isn’t it dark soooooo early right now. I think the sun went down at like 4pm today.
I know, I hate the early darkness, too…I’ll be so glad when it turns around. Did you end up getting any bit of that storm? I think we’re getting it far worse than up north.
The Blizzard arrived yesterday with a vengeance. Blowing snow and drops in the temps. I walked to the market and post office and my cheeks were frozen 😀 I think you got it worse too, I was watching Global and oh man! Stay warm down there!
It’s interesting, isn’t it?…usually we get this sort of cold and snowfall in January, but it’s sure making itself felt early this year. Maybe we’ll have a balmy new year? 🙂
Your photo is really lovely … almost looks soft even. Beautiful
Thanks so much! It’s such a wonderful place to walk, and that day the weather was quite warm for this time of year.
