Thursday, April 4 was sunny and 16 Celsius here but yesterday we awoke to this sight. The snow began at 2 am and continued into the afternoon reaching approximately 15 cms accumulation. I took this photo at about 5 am as I was getting ready for work. Areas throughout the city had power outages and as I took the transit to work, I saw my area black out as well. In another area near work, a transformer was on fire so they were without electricity for a while.
Today is sunny and warm. The accumulated snow on the streets has melted. (yay!). I hear, via my hubby, that it was gorgeous in Fort McMurray yesterday and my mom in Southern Alberta informed me it was lovely down her way. I can't complain, though, as Calgary and Central Alberta got it worse than us.
Happy Easter! I guess the Easter egg hunts will be held indoors throughout our city.
For Edmontonians, here are a few links to sites sponsoring Easter Egg Hunts this weekend:
