Is Calgary the prettiest place in Canada today?

Of course we're a bit biased, living in Alberta and all, but the heavy dusting of super-fine snow that fell over the weekend is clinging to every possible tree, bush, building and fence post, making the city look like a true winter wonderland.

The beautiful views are a nice change from what's otherwise been a very chilly and snowy autumn. The flakes have been falling almost weekly since early October and the CBC reports today that Albertans, and western Canadians in general, can brace themselves for average to below-average winter temperatures this year - a big shift from last year when we were treated to a generally mild winter.

According to Environment Canada, last year's winter was the third warmest on record. All ready this year Saskatchewan has seen more snow than they has all of last winter.

If it were this beautiful all winter long, we'd have no reason to complain. For now we'll enjoy the vistas while they last and be wary of what will no doubt be some bone-rattling temperatures to come.
