The weather in Alberta is horrid (and I was born, raised and still live here)!

I definitely prefer the spring and summer over fall and winter anytime. The biggest problem living in Alberta is the length of the seasons, not so much the cold. Spring and summer are VERY short, and it seems that there is a lot of rain in those seasons in the past few years (I've lived here all of my life - 50 years).

Weirdly enough, September seems to be a great month (although it starts to get chilly at night). It's very hard to enjoy the weather here when there's so little of the nice stuff! So I must say, unless you are the outdoorsy type, it may be a bit extreme here. I know that I'd like to retire to warmer climes!

Barry's Response - As would most of the residents in Alberta, it seems. Why? Because the weather in Alberta is horrid. Thanks for your comments here.

The weather all over the world is changing and this is not an isolated thing that is happening with Alberta. The days are getting so long these days and the climate is getting unbearable these days. The world is getting into a hot box in short.

It is what it is

Often in Alberta, despite the season, it's easy to lamment that it's less than the best.

Being born & raised myself, fortunate to have travelled both for pleasure & work, I have a few words of this I'd like to share.

I grew up having to brave cold winters and no stranger to a shovel .... yet, I never feared a tidal wave, hurricane ..... earthquake ... slim, thought a tornado impossible .... proved wrong .....

My point is this .......
Weather ...... Smart People can't predict it, ideas to explain it but not agreed fact, yet many have opinion of it.

If the weather doesn't suit .... destinations are many. Pick your poison.

Weather is the craziest beast on Mother Nature's Leash.

Whether it be in AB, or else where ..... you get what "she" gives. I have visited places and wished for the cold, safety of the prairies .... Tsunami, no concern ...... perhaps a trade.

Stuff in the air, ....... absolutely ....... has to influence. Alberta, by far is not the cause, major contributor nor stalled in attempting to lead in lessening influence of environment.

Anyone noticed it's raining tons?

Barry's Response - Cool. Thanks for the insights. I'll take our nature and whatever she deals over the social problems so prominent in other parts of the world.

Do you have concerns about air pollution in your area??

Perhaps modelling air pollution will provide the answers to your question.
