24th February 2009 - Tuesday

High: -10.0
Low: -16.0
Days we didn't see any sun: (14)
Days swept snow from drive (1)
Days shovelled snow from drive (17)
It had snowed quite a lot overnight, it wasn't snowing during the drive to work, but it had started to snow again by around 9am. The sky was white, with no sun and it was considerably colder than it has been over the past few days. The road to High River wasn't bad, but there were reports of a few collisions and cars sliding off the road in and around Calgary. It snowed lightly but consistently until early afternoon, when the sun managed to come out for a while and remained bright into the evening.

There was a Snowfall warning today for Okotoks, High River, Claresholm: around 10-15 cm of snow expected by this evening. In addition, a cold dense Arctic airmass is pushing southward across Alberta.
