It’s a typical spring on the prairies!

Ugggghhhh… Reader here, and I thought we were done with this.

The snow has returned.

I really should know better. Having been born and raised in Saskatchewan, and lived here pretty much my entire life, I should’ve known better than to tempt fate, and pack the snow brush away in the trunk.

Walking outside to find my car with snow on it is not what what I want to see this time of year. I refuse to dig out the brush, though!

It’s only the middle of April, and here on the Prairies, we’re used to getting a late blast of winter before spring truly sets in.

I was curious as to when Saskatchewan and Manitoba saw their latest snowfalls on record, so I did a bit of digging.

Did you know that the latest recorded snowfall in Saskatchewan happened on June 6, 2019? Yes, that’s right – snow in June!

This late snowfall was definitely a surprise for many residents who were already looking forward to warmer temperatures and the arrival of summer. Instead, they woke up to a winter wonderland with snow covering the ground and trees. It was a reminder that in Saskatchewan, anything is possible when it comes to weather.

Looking to the east, the latest recorded snowfall in Manitoba was even later, on June 25, 1992!

This rare occurrence serves as a reminder of the ever-changing climate in the Keystone province. From scorching hot summers to bitter cold winters, Manitoba experiences a wide range of weather patterns throughout the year.

While some may find the late snowfall to be a nuisance, others see it as a unique and beautiful phenomenon. The sight of snowflakes falling gently from the sky in the middle of summer can be quite magical and surreal.

So, next time you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to weather, just remember that Mother Nature always has a few tricks up her sleeve, especially in the prairies, where the weather can change in an instant.

I guess all we can do is embrace the unexpected and make the most of every season, no matter what it may bring!
