Agree with you Budoka for I lived in your Edmonton, Alberta city from '45 to '50 so had a sample of it. Mind you not as bad a WINTERPIG as we called Winnipeg Manitoba, Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Calgary Alberta, to Banff Alberta bar moving to the Okanagan Valley in B.C. ub 1960.
Which reminds me that one has to watch what they say in front of young people. My Mother offered one of her sisters, we would handle Betty Lou till insurance & such was settled (her husband was using a steam locmotive as protection from a slide, as they were working the raill lines, but down came an avalance of snow with enough power to take the steam lomotive & my uncle to the deepest & deather to my uncle.
Betty-lou came home crying over an error or two in spelling for she had written WINTERPIG & that was WRONG so we had to tell her that was a SLANG word used by some adults, while WINNIPEG was the correct spelling. She had been with us since 5 yrs of age & this came about when in lst or 2nd grade. WE LEARNED A LOT THEN.
Also she lived most of her early life on a farm & knew what cattle, swines (pigs) meant, & such.
So will back you up on whatever you say about Edmonton & its strange weather.
Mind you on Saturday I cleaned off the snow or the narrow double driveway, then did it again in Thursday, I think, though looked out & the mess was still there, but knew shovelling again would be a waste of time for it WAS STILL SNOWING. So thanks to a Subaru & its ALL WHEEL DRIVE.
Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
