February 13

After a completely unexciting 4 days weather-wise around here, freezing fog saved the week this morning, leaving the northeast side of the local shrubbery covered in soft, fluffy rime. Unfortunately the sun didn’t get to come all the way out and really light things up before a few puffs of wind removed most of the delicate winter jewellery by noon.
Sylvan Lake is all geared up for Winterfest 2009 tomorrow, might have to go watch the pink loons do the polar bear dip and maybe check out the human curling, fireworks at 8pm is always a good show.
Nothing exciting that I could see on the forecast models until next weekend.. maybe.
Stuck in the doldrums!

    The overcast skies definitely set the mood for these photos! Up in the Panther River country, its still winter. There was at least a an inch or two of fresh powder at km 21 1/2 on the Panther River road. Maybe a chance for Aurora’s tonight and tomorrow?

    YA on again off again flurries here since Thursday night. No fog either. Looks like another 1-3 cm this afternoon. What happened to that +14 C weather we were having?
