I’m in Alberta at the moment, visiting family and getting ready to go to the World Fantasy Convention at the end of the week. My chances to get on the internet are sporadic.
Calgary (and Edmonton) in October are cold. It’s hovering near 0 (celsius) and crisp. However the sky is clear but a weaker washed out blue this time of year. The trees are almost all bare and the ground is yellow and brown and golden. In some fields where the hay was cut long ago the remaining stubs have turned a bleached whitish yellow. They almost look silver and it’s kind of pretty. There is a touch of green left in some grass but it too has mostly yellow with the cold. Quite a contrast from Vancouver.
I will hopefully have time to write more and post but it could be sporadic this week.
