April Snow Brings.......

The April weather in Alberta is suspect at best.  I usually don't get too bent outta shape until after the May Long weekend ( there is a 50-50 chance of snow for the official start of the summer festivities).   We've had two major storms each of the weekends that I haven't been working.

I tried going out durring the first one, and well, I parked my car in the ditch, and no photos to show for the adventure.

This weekend, the roads in the area where I would be eagle spotting, were closed.  The eagles, follow the bird migrations, and so the window of oportunity to catch them is small.  I was too late last year, only a couple of "look what I saw" pix, nothing that I would now deem as usable.  A few years ago maybe, but not now. 

If April showers bring May flowers, what do April blizaards bring?  I don't care about the cold, and the snow is great.  just not when the hiways have zero visiblity.  It looks like snow all week as well... maybe next weekend, and hopefully the eagles are still around, and I can find them....

They were around Calgary area, a couple weeks back, so I may already be too late for the spring migrations.... but there is always fall....

More Later....
