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.
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.
