Alberta Foothills Weather

December 16

The forecast models have been spot on for the foothills so far, not a flake since the last post, nothing but nice warm boring weather. The GEM is suggesting a sprinkle for Thursday, and the GFS is hinting at some goodies for Christmas day.. maybe we will get some sled time in during the holidays after all?

We ventured out to the foothills west of Caroline yesterday for the annual Xmas tree hunt. Pretty dry out there too, not much more snow out in the forest than we have here, perhaps 5-7cm. Going to need a good dump before we can get out there for a tour through the timbers.

As I am writing this, we are experiencing a moderate geomagnetic storm as we enter a high speed solar wind stream. I managed to get a few shots of the weak aurora display we got here before the clouds rolled in. The disturbance is expected to continue for the next 24-48 hours.
