First blast of winter – in September

Claresholm was busy digging itself out on Monday, Sept. 30 after a weekend of snow left more than 40 centimetres in town. Schools were closed as were some businesses, and most town facilities including the library and aquatic centre. Garbage and recycling crews were also diverted to clear and move snow throughout the day. Here, M.D. Mijanur Rahman digs out in downtown Claresholm. Photo by Rob Vogt
