Winter in Saskatchewan

Leave a comment

As someone who is not fond of winter – I am enjoying the above average temperatures.  However, I remind myself that thing can (and no doubt will) quickly change.  A look back in history gives us a reminder – it can always be worse! 🙂

Worst Blizzard in Canadian Railway History – January 30 to February 8, 1947. A ten-day blizzard buried towns and trains from Winnipeg to Calgary, causing some Saskatchewan roads and rail lines to remain plugged with snow until spring. Children stepped over power lines to get to school and built tunnels to get to the outhouse. A Moose Jaw farmer had to cut a hole in the roof of his barn to get in to feed his cows.Winter of 1947

Watch for Globe Walk trail updates later today.
