Whether you’ve been out and about or playing it safe and watching the world through social media, chances are you’ve noticed that Mother Nature has done a total 180 since last month. Turns out, warmer temperatures haven’t been exclusive to one area either. We’ve actually seen record-breaking weather throughout Alberta!
Yesterday, March 18th in particular was exceptionally impressive, with 20 towns, hamlets, and cities shattering previously reached milestones.

The last year has been difficult and there’s nothing like a little vitamin C to put a skip back in your step.
