Yesterday we drove about 220 miles from Edmonton to Jasper National Park. The road is mainly flat with the mountains slowly growing in front of you as you head west.
The weather report called for cold weather and rain today so we anticipated a down day. But we awoke to 35 degree temperatures and when we raised the shade and looked out the front window this is what we saw!
Are you serious ? ? ? This is September 8th ! ! !
We only get one TV station out here, a local analog feed of a station in Edmonton. We were surprised at how calmly the weatherman reported the snow, even in the city. He said this was the earliest they had seen snow since 2004. 2004 ? ? ?
Maybe we’ll just explore in the Jeep today. The prediction is for rising temperatures as the week progresses so relief is on the way!
