Oh you gotta love Alberta weather

The past week and a bit has been really nice here. 20- 25 degrees.. shorts weather. Finally after the long, cold winter we had. Now, today it is a high of 8 above and rain. Tomorrow 4 degrees and.. SNOW! Oh my goodness. It sucks!!

A change will only come, when we stand together as one- Michael Jackson, We Are The World. Michael will forever be in our hearts. Forever the King.

Hey, I'll tell you what. I'll trade you my tornados for your cold and snow. Sound fair?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Pretty same here. We had around 20-30 degrees during the last weekend when I had to prep for my entrance tests... And now when I can laze whole the weekend... 6-10 degrees and stormy rain.

Well, at least we won't have snow (if I can only trust for the forecasts).


"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Seriously!
I was in Calgary the past weekend, and on June 7th, IT SNOWED! And rained, and the whole time all I had were flip flops to wear. Needless to say, I have a wicked cold.
And, now Im back home in Pincher, and I see snow on the mountains all over again. Uuugggghhh

I was born and raised in Alberta, only moving to Ontario a couple of years ago, and the weather difference is huge! I much prefer spring here, but the middle of summer if too much!
I'm actually considering moving back soon, so schitzo weather here I come!

Like Tamma said, Finland is pretty much the same :/ The weekend when school ended was amazing! We were on the beach (which was packed) and we even went swimming in the sea. And I got a sunburn! And then on tuesday it went back to COLD and rainy. :(
