We Are Miles Ahead

This sign is west of Seven Persons, Alberta along the Crowsnest Highway. I've always been a fan of these big wooden signs, especially one that makes a statement.

The pronghorn logo is a nice tip of the hat to the abundant wildlife in the area.

One mess followed by another

I believe we got five inches of snow today. It stopped about an hour ago and now the sun is out and it is melting creating a slushy mess.

The guy who runs the bottle depot here in town will be happy once this clears up. The highway runs through this town and most of the business are along it including his. He parked in front of his business and was stuck this morning trying to drive off. The local Peace Office blocked traffic while he was being towed onto the road.

Now he is stuck again.

The weather forecast has been lying to me

Last night the forecast was a chance of flurries. This morning I woke up to a minor snowpocalypse. It looked like there was at least a few inches on the ground, if not more. I think it caught the town by surprise, nothing was plowed and a few people were getting stuck in their driveways. The radio said we were under a heavy snowfall warning. It should stop early this afternoon and start melting in the next day or two.

The joys of living in Alberta.
