Winter in Lethbridge

One of the great things about living in Lethbridge is the variable weather. A common saying in Southern Alberta is, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes”. While that may be hyperbolic, it does aptly illustrate our very volatile weather pattern.
What this means is that we get a variety of weather; it never stays the same too long. We don’t get a lot of rain, our summers aren’t too hot, and our winters aren’t too cold.
While we do get cold weather in winter, it doesn’t last more than a week or two before we get a reprieve.
That being said, I love winter in Lethbridge. I love the hoarfrost; I love sledding in the Sugar Bowl; I love walking through the river valley on my way to work. Winter here makes for some unique photos.
Here are a few I took:

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
