Calgary AB - Photos from my trip!

Calgary is a fairly new city and pretty much still under construction and I noticed how there is a huge influx of recent migrants settling here as it's very easy to find a job and the pay is pretty high compared to the rest of Canada.
Even though it's not a very lively or exciting city, i think if i ever manage to move to Canada, i would settle here initially

The snow consistency in this part of Canada is very very soft and dry and therefore as you can see in the photo it makes an incredible mess on the main streets where the car go and before you know everything becomes incredibly muddy

Tis the nature of the Photothreads section, I am afraid... there are so many picture threads on the go at any time. I quite enjoyed your picture tour!

A photothread on Calgary doesn't pop up very often so I was glad to see this one. Nice photos and I hope you enjoyed your stay

Be patient... I lived in Alberta for 15 years, and for Calgary to have that much snow on the road is somewhat unusual - even midwinter. Southern Alberta has the world's greatest temperature variation during the winter months.... a weather phenomenon know as a "Chinook" occurs numerous times during the winter and causes temperatures to spike upward.... It can go from a low of -35C one day, then just a couple of days later experience a high of +17C. When that happens the snow will disappear within a few days and the roads will be dry... which is more the norm during the winter in Calgary. When the city gets a significant amount of snow, sand is spread on the roads to improve traction for vehicles.... this sand/dirt gets on the vehicles and really makes them grimy, so they have to be washed quite often... also understand that Calgary is a fairly dry city and doesn't get all that much snow in the Canadian context.

http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinook

BTW, nice photos... Calgary's a bit of a messy due to all the construction and population growth.. Circa 1950, IIRC the population was under 150,000... it's about 1.2 million now.

You can! In Calgary there is an incredibly high number of new migrants as there are too many jobs and not enough people
