We've had 15-20cm overnight and up to now, of wet, heavy snow...

Same here... about 20 cm overnight, about half melted through the day.  Environment Canada prophesizes more for Monday.  Yuck, I've had enough of this!    >:(

Can you understand, next week we are going to explore the snow in the mountains? For a whole week? Hope it is some of the white stuff left, seems that you take it all over there ;) :D

Yes, I do understand, though I don't ski!  The snow is fine in the mountains here, and will be for some time yet!

Trond, Although I'm fairly philosophical about snow/winter ( I didn't move back to Alberta for a shorter winter!) I have always lived places with adequate snow for my needs (I have no particular need for it...) so I have never travelled to anyplace with more snow than where I am living..... and never had much desire to go into the mountains until there are plants to look at...lol

The snow we had the other day only melted on highways and areas that were shovelled or cleared, and some spots near buildings or trees.. otherwise, most of it is still on the ground (on top of what was still here...).. we luckily did not get another 2-4cm forecast for today, but there are 'periods of snow' forecast again starting tomorrow afternoon...
All I ask is that I not have to shovel any more :( but with highs forecast of -1, 1 and 0 for the next three days, I'm not optimistic.....

Trond : I've never understood the need to head for the mountains at this time of year - it's been a long snow-rich winter with plenty of skiing, but now it's spring and I'll be spending the week in the garden... :) I'm obviously missing something as there were queues heading out of town last night...

Stephen to tell you the truth, it is my wife who insist ;D but I like it too. After we moved to the westcoast we experience less snow than when we lived in Oslo and this winter I haven't used skis at all!

But we don't follow the flock, Saturday we drove to Oslo (no snow along the road except at the highest mountain crossing at the western side of the mountains!!). Today, Sunday we head for our cabin. Rumor says very little snow there too.

I just had to mention I checked the Environment Canada weather for the next couple of days, and for Camrose, it's forecast for 7 deg. C tomorrow, "abnormal weather trend" they called it, I'd say so. Mind you, it was last year that we had a heavy wet snow this time of year, only lasted for a few minutes it seemed, but still! I'm farther south than Camrose, but brrrrr... I better keep that heat on in my tiny greenhouse.

Wow! Our low (for Rocky Mtn House) tomorrow is 13C for tomorrow..just a touch cooler than it has been for some days...normal high is 19C now, and we will only see that once in the next week (again, that's Rocky, we are 30km East, and could have slightly higher temps forecast farther East..
