Winter weather takes
Alberta by storm
Times Associate Editor

Southern Alberta bypassed the fall season
on Monday and reluctantly welcomed an
early winter as snowfall fell into the double
Grand opening digits and gusting winds caused wretched
blizzard-like conditions, shutting down ma-
jor roadways and closing down schools.
Strathmore received up to 10 cm of snow
Page 21 earlier this week and experienced winds
travelling 60 to 90 km/h. The abrupt burst
of winter steered numerous vehicles and
motorists into ditches and caused multiple
collisions across southern Alberta which, to-
gether with the poor road conditions, result-
ed in the closure of Highway 1 from the City
of Calgary to Bassano from 11:20 a.m. until
after 6 p.m.
While Alberta Environment forecasted the
Hawks fly arrival of the snowstorm, its impact took res-
idents by surprise.
“Alberta yesterday was very problematic
… it wasn’t a surprise, I know the weather
was forecasting snow, but I think the extent
of this winter storm came as a surprise spe-
cifically in that region,” said Laurel Scott, me-
dia relations officer with Alberta RCMP.
“We had several road closures and we
had very poor road and driving conditions.
There were several cars in the ditches and
