On my way to Easter dinner this weekend I was able to get a good look at what the country side of Alberta actually looked like. Being in the city, and only seeing it on the weekends, you can really see the changes.
We had a lot of snow this winter, and with the warm weather this past week, we have seen a lot of that snow melt. But with the snow melting, there is large amounts of water laying around. This is great to have moisture in our fields, however, it makes it tough for the farmers to plant crops and start producing another year's crop and food for the world.
Let's hope this warm weather sticks around and the snow that they are forecasting for the end of the week stays away.
