Calgary received 19 cm of snow, a record for this date of October 22. In 1939, he had fallen 18 cm on the same date. The Kananaskis Valley, west of Calgary, received almost 27 cm. And on Sunday, it was Saskatchewan’s turn to receive a broadside. Travel was complicated, including in the Moose Jaw region, when the Trans-Canada Highway was closed over a section of nearly 100 km. There were also a few power outages in the area.
Here are some images of this first major snowfall:
