It was a record-breaking 21.8°C in Calgary one year ago

Oh, how spoiled we were.

On November 8, 2016, Calgary broke a 93-year-old high heat record with a blistering high of 21.8°C.

Fast forward 366 days, and we’re sitting at -12°C (though it feels like -20°C), and covered with snow.

That’s a temperature change of 33.8°C – which, to be fair, isn’t all that unlikely an occurrence in Calgary.

It’s not that the cold weather is a terrible thing, either, as ski hills have been opening around the province following our recent cold spell… but if Mother Nature could turn it down by a notch or three, we’re sure it would be appreciated.
