Wanderlust cured’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 04 Aug 2009

Location: Canmore, Canada

MapWhere did summer go?

I am of the belief that Canada is supposed to be in the thrusts of summer right now...why then am I being exposed to frequent thunderstorms, more than our share of rain, lightning up the waazoo and back to cold weather?

Current forcast: all doom & gloom - showers EVERYDAY!

Canada's Current Summer........................Hobart's Winter

6° | 12° Tue ....................................... 9° | 13° Wed
7° | 12° Wed ...................................... 9° | 14° Thu
8° | 16° Thu ..................................... 9° | 10° Fri
7° | 17° Fri ....................................... 6° | 12° Sat

Why do these two look scarily similar? Can someone help me find summer...Im not after the 30+ days that we had a week ago, Im am more than happy with 25 degrees, is that asking for too much?

This weather makes us all think about the snow and with summer already being short lets hope winter doesnt start too soon, otherwise I will be dreaming of tropical beaches...which I will get more than my fair share of cycling through Latin America.

Work was cancelled today due to the rain, poor wet horses. They looked at me this morning like "can you stop the rain, cause we are cold and soaked right through". So instead, I spent the day trying to gather enough information from here to do my tax return and hunting for a job to get me through the winter. Maybe a warm office will be a nice change?

Oh, I also figured out how to get cheap calls to OZ using Skype. Was kinda funny being in Canada, talking to my computer screen to a girl with an Aussie accent at the Tax Office. Cracked me up. Im getting so used to Canadian accents that voices from home actually sound weird.

Am working on more specific dates for car roadtrip as well as times & distances...will update you when these are finalised (finalised in the travelling sense, meaning they could always change at any time).
