I think that probably just about anywhere in the world the local saying is "if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes and it'll change". That's certainly true of Alberta - especially in the spring.
When I went to bed five hours ago (got reading, of course), the ground was dry and clear.
Since I don't have to be out in it, it's actually sort of pretty with huge snowflakes falling! Forecast is for 1-3 cm of snow from Thursday morning to Friday morning.
