Ah June, when the long sunny days bring thoughts of swimming holes, tents and - toboggans?
Yes, snow has fallen in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan this weekend.
Bundled in a long coat and mittens to ward of the cold, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's wife, Laureen, led an annual parade in Diamond Valley, Alta., on Saturday, undeterred by the snowfall around her.
"It's lovely to be home," said Harper, who grew up in the area.
"I love it, no matter what the weather is."
In Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, which straddles the border between Alberta and Saskatchewan, forecasters reported a heavy snowfall.
"We had a report from the park there was 15 centimetres on the ground and still snowing heavily," said Dan Fulton with Environment Canada.
"We will be expecting total snow there of about 20 or maybe even 25 centimetres (Saturday) in the park."
