First Snowfall on the Prairies
The first snow has fallen in Manitoba, and the other prairie provinces--which means we will be seeing a lot more of the images on this page for the next five months.
Today, as the first snow lightly falls, it has its own kind of beauty. In March, however, when we just want the stuff to go away already, it will be a different matter altogether.
Mind you, none of this applies to the CP Rail M & M Sub., where it is perpetually summer. Even in the depths of a prairie winter, I can retreat to the basement to enjoy summertime weather and forget the cold and snow outside.
