Distraction from the snow

Another Tuesday … another snow day in Calgary — although this one is nowhere near as severe as the last one. Regardless, I’m trying to distract myself from the mediocre weather with thoughts of warmer, sunnier places. Amsterdam’s Museumplein in summertime will do just fine. These are from August 2014, when I passed through on my way to northern Europe.

This stash of pine cones will be keeping a few squirrels happy this coming winter.

Looking up at the blue sky, wispy white clouds and golden leaves while on a short hike through Edworthy Park in Calgary at the end of September.

This little critter didn’t take too kindly to my interrupting whatever it was doing. After a few seconds of playing freeze, it scurried off to warn its brethren of a human in their midst. From my short wander through Calgary’s Edworthy Park in late September.

Another snap from Tuesday afternoon, from a wander I undertook during a (slight) break in the snowy weather.

One of the quick snaps I took yesterday after Calgary got walloped by a record-breaking snow storm, with the official record showing almost 33 cm accumulated on Tuesday. Some neighbourhoods got closer to 40 or 50 cm. Tuesday’s snowfall made it Calgary’s snowiest day since 1981 and snowiest Oct. 2 in the weather record books.

From my wander through Edworthy Park a week ago — a beautiful, sunny autumn afternoon with temperatures reaching into the mid-teens Celsius. (The weather is quite a bit chillier and snowier today.)
