Blue skies...?

Blondes make the best victims. They're like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints. Alfred Hitchcock
My apologies to blondes but I needed a quote representative of today's atmospheric tidings of ill joy.

I hope where ever you are, you are sitting down 'cause I'm sure, unless you're here in Alberta, that this news will drop you to the floor.

It's snowing.


May 29 and it's snowing.

It's the third day it's snowed actually. Though, yesterday, the snow from Thursday melted. It's back today.


In Monty Python's, The Life of Brian, John Cleese and Co. sang, "Always look on the bright side of life," ...

I'm trying to find the bright side in this snow, so... in an effort to lighten up this dull but not so chilly Saturday (do you know how much the flowers don't like snow?) I offer up some silly and just some sweet moments in the hope that tomorrow will be another day -- and the sun will shine and the snow will go and we will be sitting pretty under blue skies, nothing but blue skies can I see!

And this one because... well the drumming is amazing and wouldn't you know it -- the rain turns to snow!

and how could I resist a song by Jonah and the Whales all about blue skies?

I know someone else in Calgary who mentioned the snow on Twitter. He doesn't like it either.

Do stay warm. We had a huge storm last night that left everything soaked and this afternoon is gray. A good day to stay in and read and write.
