Crazy April turnaround

Just as we are enjoying a sunny day of 10 degrees, Environment Canada puts out a snowfall warning for 15 to 25 cm of the white stuff.

Fassnacht strikes again? Haha. I just started reading these blogs 2 weeks ago. I remember reading that post just under a week ago.

Thanks to UW, I will forever call that storm in early April in my mind as a "Fassnacht" (German: "keg night"?) It is still hard to explain to people from where this name originated!

I was thinking the same thing about the Fassnacht storm. It seems like labeling a Fassnacht storm before June is just tempting Mother Nature to throw us another storm:)

It is always hard to say that something is the "last" when it comes to the weather.

But yes I definitely jumped the gun last week in calling the little bit of snow on the 30th the "Fassnacht" storm, we are definitely living it now.

You can blame me for putting out the snowfall warning Sunday for Monday. Perhaps I should consider adding a "Fassnacht Sturm" watch to our bulletin types?
