Suddenly Summer

That is as I remember it from our earlier life in Alberta. Summer comes overnight.
This  posting will be short because I have only very limited internet for the time being.

Remember: May 6 with 20 cm of new snow and freezing temperatures.
It is hard to imagine now that we sat in our trailer with ice on the walls! Ha!
Now we are into summer time.
27 C (80 F) and dry hot weather. Everything stared to grow and bloom within a few days time. So beautiful after all the grey, white and brown
of the winter.
Wildfires are cropping up everywhere and two more weeks to go before we are heading home!
I am looking soooo forward to it.

Snow in May

Winter made a comeback 
With our limited internet access I have to make this posting pretty short.
This was the look we got from our breakfast table this morning.
Heavy snow showers all day long. 
15-20 cm (6-7,5 inch) of the white stuff are predicted.
Luckily it will not last long, by the end of the week the temperatures
will be back in the double digits. 15 - 20C (59-68F).

Auntie's Translation
Mit unserem begrenzten Zugang zum Internet 
muss ich diesen Eintrag ziemlich kurz halten.
Das war der Blick heute morgen - Neuschnee am 6. Mai, 
15-20 cm sind zu erwarten.
Aber es wird nicht lange liegen bleiben. 
Zum Ende der Woche sind wieder Wärmegrade angesagt.
