No. People just died of starvation and Dysentery.

So much Dysentery.....

The Snowfall warning continues for Calgary, and it's cold so be careful to everyone who ventures out.

Shoveling was a breeze this morning. Love it when the weather is cold enough that the snow doesn't clump. Not great for making snow forts though.

yeah, after going out, it was actually not bad and shovelling was really easy.

They used sleds when it snowed.

I had to walk fifteen miles (because it's always fifteen miles, don't question it) to school in the snow! Barefoot! Uphill! Both ways!

If it’s too cold to make decent snowballs frozen horse turds work really well, they don’t break up on the fly.

With only my faithful dog Facechewer to keep me company, and warm when I fell. But it was an adventure that I would never deny myself. Why sure, one day I had to fight off Nazi's, and then there was the time that the old Macaliser house burst into flames, and I put it out with my own urine.



You darn teenagers have it so soft nowadays with your internal combustion engines and air conditioning and toilet paper not made out of corn and leeches.

We had to use a page from the Sears catalogue for ass wipe and even then a toilet was this wooden outhouse that you had to walk in deep snow to get to.

Those were the days.

Yeah that pissed me off because I used the same catalogues as Goalie pads. The more you wiped the more it hurt playing goal.

You rich city folks. Scrap lumber and tree bark was all we had. We used to pray for hemorrhoids just so we could find the splinters.

See...now this is great.

Its nice and snowy, no wind, its -1, the roads are wet but not treacherous at all.

This is nice.

Except for the shovelling. They never really tell you about all the shovelling.

NSFW!

I'd agree, perfect snowfall.

Looks great, lots for kids to play in, but main roads perfect given temperature is just perfect for de-icer to work, but not for true "melt".

The slightly wet base layer in shoveling I'll certainly take over other snowfalls.

Why can't we just have a little snow? Why does it always have to be accompanied by a snowfall warning?
