Winter 2024 … ?

At the beginning of December this happened …


We weren’t surprised.
It’s Winter.
So I went out and shovelled the sidewalk.
Then …
This happened …

It’s called a Chinook Arch (around here).
A Chinook is a warm wind that comes across the Rockies
from the West Coast – and raises the temperature
to balmy conditions.
We’ve had about 12 Chinooks so far this year.
That’s not normal.
But they just keep coming.

A Chinook arch can span the Rockies all the way from
Northern Alberta to New Mexico, USA
Around here that can bring weather like this:

We know this won’t last.
But we’re appreciating it while we can.
