The powers that be have moved winter to February up here in Okotoks.  We've
had a brown dry winter and I always worry how plants will make it through
the winter without several feet of snow cover.  It has snowed just about
every day this past month with temps around -10 - -20C.  I will not complain
about the snow, we desperately need the moisture.  Nothing is happening in
my cold frames yet, much too cold.

Still have hippeastrums blooming in the house along with some dianthus,
delphiniums and the odd allium that didn't get in the ground last fall.  I'm
eagerly anticipating spring this year, my rock garden out front was
completed and filled with all sorts of goodies, bulbs and non-bulbs.  I
can't wait to see how it will look.  For now I will have to be content with
seed starting.

And this I just find funny, Calgary, a Canadian city that does not have a
snow removal budget?
