October 4

No white stuff here this morning, but it wasn’t far away.
The snow started on time Friday to the northwest and was confined to the very edge of the mountains until this morning, when most places south of about Bowden and west of the QE2 got into the flakes to varying degrees. Watching the AMA highway cameras over the weekend, Jasper Park Gate and the Ranchlands were the accumulation winners. I never saw enough snow to cover the highway at Jasper, but in the foothills southwest of Calgary along #22 it looked like the roads could be a bit tricky.
Not much of an event, the only amount I have heard reported was 3 inches on the golf course in Kananaskis country.
We went for a quick spin southwest this afternoon to see if there were any piles of snow between here and Sundre, but other than a few patches around Bowden and the Red Deer river west of there, only the highest hilltops had a few cm of snow on them by then.
Nothing but a few flurries here through the day, total about 3mm of drizzly cold precip and a high of 3.7C.
