It's a week of firsts now that the snow has finally melted. Last night we had our first firepit in the back yard. This is one of my favourite things to do in Spring and Fall.
Because Calgary is so close to the Rocky Mountains (to the west) and the Prairies (to the east) we lie on the boundary of two weather systems. This means that we get warm prairie days but cool mountain nights. It's wonderful in summer when our days are baking hot and our evenings pleasantly cool, but in spring the nights can be downright chilly (it's often a few degrees below zero at night until the end of May).
What better way to unwind for the weekend than to gaze into a warm glowing fire and sip a beer!
