Predictions of Frost Bite

a chinook
(a warm dry wind that blows down the east side of the Rocky Mountains)
has blown in to town
sent from our Alberta neighbours
I went for a walk yesterday at coffee time
and I didn't wear my mittens

I will enjoy it while I can
for I know the cold winds will follow
forcing me to wrap back up
and hide away any exposed skin

(I sent that to you Catherine!)
We get Chinooks regularly, as we are on the east side of the Rockies. They help ease the pain of winter and helps me get through this very loooong season of cold. Enjoy!

We did have rain and warm temps over the weekend, but we had snow yesterday, so it definitely looks (and feels) like winter now. Enjoy the respite while you can!

Enjoy the warmer weather Catherine! It's warmer here but our sun is gone so I'm thinking I prefer the cold and sunny days although warm and sunny days would be perfect!

Ann said...

That looks like a beautiful place for a walk especially when you've got a warm wind

BumbleVee said...

I think Winter is rather temperamental like we women wouldn't you say.First she fills us with delight by bearing gifts of delicate snowflakes then when we're not looking a blizzard has arrived.
Enjoy that warm weather while you can.

We had a minor thaw last week but now we're back to -20 or so. I still prefer this to the summer heat!

Sylvia said...

HI Catherine! We had chinooks when we lived in Alaska, and it never occurred to me they may happen somewhere else. I remember how chinooks melted a lot of the snow and being a welcome respite from the cold of January!

Velvet Over Steel said...

Yep, it's been very nice here for a couple of days... but oh the deep cold from last week is coming back next week. Brrrr...

Yep, we need to njoy and appreciate the breaks when we get them!!!

Hugs,
Coreen

It was 32 here today! It makes me nervous when it's that much warmer than normal. Stay warm, Catherine! Winter will come back...

S. Etole said...

Send a little warmth this way, please ....

Stacey Dawn said...

What a gorgeous place that just exudes peace..... oh wow!!! Hope you do stay warm and frostbite free!

Angie, Catladyland/Katt Food said...

Yes, take advantage of those days when you can!! Winter is here to stay, I'm afraid. Stay cozy and snuggle that Banjo baby :)

Becca said...

Wow, now that is "real" snow, not like our wimpy kind! I would just love sometime to "experience" in person that kind of winter beauty...but then I want fly back home to our "whimpy" winters. LOL

Jaime said...

Hmm...and I always thought chinooks were strictly Calgary things. Learned something new today.
