Exercise the bare minimum of what is required for us to have a democracy, if you’re an Albertan make your way down to the polls and participate in the political process.

Not at all actually.  Good Riddance evil snow!

Luckily, due to a variety of meteorological factors, Alberta experienced a very mild winter, we’ve been very lucky this year, meaning that I’ve been wearing these:

Instead of these for much of the winter/spring season. –

Here in western Canada, we really don’t have much to complain about.  However, a different story is being played out in the East.

Eastern, Southern and Central Ontario will be hit with snow starting Sunday night and lasting through Tuesday, Environment Canada says. Ottawa, Kingston, Peterborough, Toronto and Hamilton can all expect a possible dump of white stuff, while North Bay and Sudbury could continue to see wintry precipitation through the end of the week.

Temperatures in most of those areas are forecast to fall to one degree C, and in some places will be several notches below freezing, which is up to 10 degrees below normal for this time of year, Environment Canada said.

Meanwhile in Quebec, it’ll look like a winter wonderland. Parts of the Saguenay region around Lac-St-Jean and southeast of Chicoutimi, as well as the Lower St. Lawrence, Gaspé and North Shore regions, are expecting 15 to 20 centimetres of wet snow beginning Saturday night and lasting until Monday.

The federal weather office has issued snowfall alerts for most of those areas and cautioned that strong winds could whip up the snow, impeding visibility on roads.”

Late season snow can be very demoralizing as it brings back all the dread of winter when its “supposed” to be all nice and warm and sunny.  We’ve had our late season snow here in the Alberta and thankfully it went away fairly quickly, I hope that our Eastern neighbours have similar results.
