Temperature Records: Cooked.

Cardston, Alberta hit 17C today leading the way for a number of temperature records to be shattered across the western Canadian prairies. A line of warmer than normal temperatures has been glued to an area just east of the Rocky Mountains for the better part of this season that our ancestors named "winter".

The color coded map from CAPS/CONUS indicates a distinct line down the east side of the Rockies. An even better view is the sometimes updated snow map from the University of Waterloo .

Car washes and BBQ's are getting used for the first time in many parts of Saskatchewan this January! Hopefully the infestation of poisonous creatures does not climb as it did last year but if God says, "bring back the dinosaurs", then who are we to argue?
