It snowed is St. Albert today. Luckily, I found the source of the problem. There were several snow-making machines I ran across on my walk through Red Willow Park. They were quite tall, had brown trunks and had many green things on their branches. This brand of snowmaker is “Poplar” I believe. Several parts of Red Willow Park had significant accumulation – up to two inches. The conditions of the sidewalks in those areas was slick because of rain occurring at the same time.
Luckily, it was beautiful to walk amidst the beautiful, big “snowflakes”, otherwise known as fluff.
