Turning Colder Already!

Well the low low last night was 9 C or 48 F and that is cool for the beginning of August but I have been told you can get snow here this time of year.  Great!  As if  I don't dislike this place enough already, add some snow this time of year!
    Aug. 7: Golf ball-sized hail caused extensive damage to vehicles and homes in the Airdrie area late Thursday afternoon.
    Calgary is the HAIL capital of Canada!  Damages from a storm earlier this week!
    Hail the size of loonies!

    I was very disappointed this week, I didn't get the National Accounts Coordinator position I applied for and my better half and I know why.  IF I had to go back to Ontario to work, they would have lost someone else and that wouldn't be allowed.  This is the second job that I didn't get on account of the same reason!  More changes coming this month at work, just don't know what they are!

    I have 1 more day off planned, a 2 day trip to Ontario for a wedding and then nothing else.  I still have 16.5 days to take vacation but every time I submit a request I get not sure when I will be allowed to take it.  August 29th, fly to Ontario and back here August 31!

    Nascar race today...go 24 Gordon!  He is doing great this year. When we were in Vegas at the M & M store, they had Kyle's car of my fellow bloggers is a Bush fan so I'll post a picture for her!  (Carol, here you go!)

    Yeah right!

    Well that's it folks...lets see what the week ahead has in store.  

    never give up no matter how hopeless ~
    Somehow some way, we will make it happen!
    Have a great week ahead my friends.

    Shopping was much better in Kalispell than Great Falls, at least they have more stores one can visit....and the best part, no tax!
