The lovely view from the Peace Bridge a couple of weeks ago, before the weather turned cold and the snow began to fly. Calgary was blessed with many weeks to enjoy the fall colours, as opposed to the much shorter period we’re accustomed to around these parts.

Well … this is certainly one way to look at COVID-19! Seen on a building on 17 Avenue S.W. in Calgary recently.
