Snowing in Edmonton

While it had been forecast for the weekend, it had held off until now. It is currently snowing—and accumulating—in Edmonton.

After our initial east coast admirations of it, cameras were grabbed and photos taken. Then I realized that this might be the only snow I see until I head home for Christmas, and even then there is no guarentee, what with the unpredictable snow patterns of the last few years.

Hopefully the snow won’t affect me getting to the airport and in turn my flight from departing back to Vancouver.

I bid you all wintery greetings.

At the rodeo

I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to or want to say this in the future, but I’m a the rodeo. The Canadian Finals Rodeo to be exact. I really don’t know what to expect—bull-riding, steer wrestling I guess. Some sort of roping stuff. Should be interesting. Unfortunately they don’t allow the use of “detachable lens cameras”, but I’ll try to grab a couple shots anyway. There are a lot of cowboy hats and boots in here. :)

So very busy

Things have been quite busy at work lately, with 14 or 15 hour days not being uncommon. I have finished up one particular project which was causing a lot of that, and I am now focusing my energy on another project which I find if not more interesting at the moment, certainly more enjoyable.

And there is a light—I’m not going to say at the end of the tunnel, but perhaps a crack in the side of the tunnel. I have booked a trip to Edmonton for a few days in November. I’m really looking forward both to the break from work, but more importantly visiting Mike, my friend from Dalhousie. I was also born in Edmonton and the only time that I’ve been back since I was less than a year old was for a week in 1991. Yea, I was nine and I certainly didn’t appreciate it as much as I could have. So this is my chance to soak it in. That soaking may well take place through a camera lens, but so be it. It may well take place in a series of restaurants and pubs as well, and so be that too. :)

So if I don’t post anything before I venture into the heart of coldness that is Edmonton, know that I’m still kicking, but also working away diligently.
