It almost makes me wish for a cover of fresh snow, even if it’s just for a day! Above, a line of buffalo sculptures in a park near the Calgary Courts Centre, snapped back in 2012.

Spotted this on my way to work a few weeks ago. Would it surprise to you learn that by the time I passed this spot on my way home, the coffee was still there but the beer was gone?
