The First Snowfall of the Year – Really?

Calgary Snowfall

September 9 and my city was hit with the first snowfall of the year – yuk! What is the rush? Halloween is when the threat of the year’s first snowfall normally takes place. September 9th, come on! The weather dropped as the rain turned to snow, forcing a mad scramble to find a heavier jacket to wear. The snow was full of water (gotcha) making it very heavy that took down trees and power lines. My wife needed to knock the heavy snow off the gazebo before it collapsed.

One thing it has done is triggered my brain that its the time of the year where we spend more time indoors because of the cold. It also reminded me that I declared back in the summer that work would begin in earnest in September of my new book, Under The Sea.

Can’t wait to get writing!
