8th January 2009 - Thursday

High: -11.0
Low: -15.0
Days we didn't see any sun: (10)
Days swept snow from drive (1)
Days shovelled snow from drive (13)
It was a cloudy start to the day, which gradually became completely white. We had a very short hail storm at around noon and it snowed lightly on and off for most of the afternoon. The temperature was showing around -10, but there was a really biting wind chill making it feel extremely cold. It was a foggy drive home, with blowing snow and slight snowfall making visibility and road conditions quite poor.

There have been weather warnings in effect today, suggesting strong winds, blowing snow and blizzard conditions in southern Alberta, particularly: Airdrie, Chochrane, Olds, Sundre, Lethbridge and Cypress Hills.
