I'm sorry to hear that you have to cancel. Why does 6" of snow cancel the whole summer?

WOW! Just HOPE we get a spring this year.

Last year it was 40 degrees one weekend and 90 the next.
This year here in North Georgia it's looking that way again *UGH*

Good luck and stay warm...

PS LOVE LOVE LOVE Jasper Alberta!

Hey, spring may be cancelled - but summer will be here eventually. Hang in there.

On another note, I was sad to read Ralph K. is very ill - now he was a politician with charisma, maybe too much some days, but an interesting one he was. Met him once in Edmonton at a business function.

I am leaving from BC to Ont. tommorow. Planning to be in Calgary on Sunday. When will the snow stop? Will be camping at Calgary West Campground. Hope they are open. Tried calling today and the message said they were closed but will be open April 15th. The cool air will keep the beer cold.

I don't think the snow will ever stop. this is why I have officially cancelled summer.I'm not sure when on Sunday it is supposed to stop. If the campground is closed and you can't get in the one on cochrane is much nicer.

I sure hope I wasn't the only person who decided to "pretend" to be out camping today.

I don't care that it was snowing; I went out to the trailer to watch the hockey game and enjoy a beer.

I agree, this is so depressing. No camping, no golfing,,, what next.

I am moving...I just purchase my new 5th wheel, may have to trade it in on a sled or two.
