Calgary made the New Hampshire TV news yesterday, as unusual as your snow.

LOL snow in Calgary in the summer isn't really all that unusual - LOL as I recall it it has snowed during Stampede week in July before I think the amount it snowed is what is most unusual and what makes the story.

Calgary Snowfall perspective

"Shocking as the snow was to many, it wasn't the city's earliest late-summer snowfall. Calgary recorded 11.7 centimeters (just under 5 inches) of snow on Sept. 8 in 1921, according to Environment Canada statistics.

The earliest single-day snowfall of 10 centimeters (4 inches) or more there was on Sept. 6, 1972, but Calgary had a two-day total of 10.4 centimeters on Aug. 25-26, 1900.

It even snowed in Calgary once in July, when 0.3 centimeter (0.1 inch) fell on July 23, 1918.

Calgary's three-day total of 28.2 centimeters (about 11.1 inches) is on par with average snowfall for September, October and November, combined (31 centimeters), according to Environment Canada. "

On another weather note AZ received a year's worth of precipitation over about a weeks period, to me that means blooming desert flowers.

That would be Mr. Gore's "Global Warming". Opps, I guess "they" are calling it "Climate Change" these days. I suppose the weather or anybody else can make up their mind.

I have been told, (no source) that it has snowed in every month in Calgary. Not in the same year mind you.

Climate change is an interesting move from Global Warming. Weather (pun) it flood or drought it's a climate 'change'. That's called a no lose position or the politician's choice.

1816 was a year with out a summer, also called the Poverty Year, caused by low solar activity, the end of the Little Ice Age and a volcanic eruption.

When I was a kid, and I'm not youngster, my mother tried to plan a BBQ and picnic on July 4th in the Denver area... it snowed... so we had s'mores and oven/broiler created hamburgers instead.

Hummm I am going to guess they only record it as having actually snowed if the ground is cold enough to allow it to accumulate so it can be measured. I worked summers as a teen at a horse ranch just outside of Calgary and I recall one day in July when what I would call slushy snow coming down hard. Although I may be old I assure you it wasn't in 1918 either Suspect there are few long time Calgarian's here who have seen the slush coming down in summer months before as well.

Snow in Yellowstone

Woke up to snow at Fishing Bridge RV Park in Yellowstone this morning.

Flurried all the way into the Tetons where we were greeted by some very nicely dressed mountain peaks.

We have about 3 inches of wet sloppy snow here in Casper Wy this evening.
My Dad used to say "We have winter and July 4th, and sometimes it snows during the fireworks"

Don't know about that climate change stuff. We just call it weather.

Polar Vortex was the buzz phrase last year, I got a feeling they are not done with it yet.
The good piece in the news yesterday was that all the efforts on banning CFC's in spray cans is working, the Ozone layer is reported to be on the mend.

Yeah, there were a few tree lined streets that were impassible until the city cleared all the folial carnage. LOTS of downed branches on the deciduous trees. Heck, they were nowhere near turning colour yet either.
