I have never known such cold, nipping wind, and incessant snow..as what we saw all of January and the first half of February here in Calgary. Yes..it's Canada, I knew that. But it wasn't supposed to get like this, I was told. Everyone around here says this is the worst winter in quite a while. To illustrate..I give you a photo of a grandma out on the Waterfront for some reason, wearing a babushka and pushing a cart. And like typical Calgary, construction moves forward at a fast pace on all of the projects around the city and people go out and brave the elements day to day. It's not bad--it's just a different lifestyle for sure than Oklahoma. One where you have a new appreciation for summer, triple digit heat, and all things Global warming.
