Winter returns to Southern Alberta

Winter returned to Southern Alberta with a vengeance yesterday bringing more than 20 cm of snow to communities like Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Strathmore.

Schools were shut down and power was knocked out to thousands as the heavy, wet snow and high winds brought down trees and power lines.

Calgary escaped the snow but was buffeted with powerful winds gusting to 90 km/h that whipped debris throughout the downtown core closing at least one transit platform.
