    It was very localized. The eastern side of Calgary to Chestemere got 25-30cm. Most of the rest of Calgary got 20-25cm. Here in Airdrie we were just on the northwestrn area and only got 15cm. Just 10miles to the north in Crossfield only got a skiff. FINALLY after 6 months some real weather, did anyone see this coming. I was sure caught off guard. That gives Airdrie 35-40 cm total between 3 snowfalls over 10 days. Today there is only 2 inches left and the roads are dry.
    Time for PB to get some action…hey Pat?

    That’s pretty crazy stuff haha
    We got maybe a cm here but it was gone before the sun even broke out.
    I’m pretty sure we didn’t get 35cm of snow here over the entire winter.
