Summer snow blankets Rockies from Canada to Colorado

Snow? Already?

That's what people from Canada to Colorado are saying after a late-summer snowstorm blanketed parts of the Rocky Mountains on Wednesday.

A cold front pouring down from Canada sent low temperatures dipping into the 30s from Alberta to the northern Rockies. As much as 14 inches of snow has fallen in Calgary since Monday, weather officials say, knocking down trees and powerlines, snarling traffic and delaying flights at the city's airport.



In Colorado, snow fell in the upper elevations, covering mountain passes and ski areas not scheduled to open for weeks.




At least some of the snow-sacked northerners found humor in the unseasonable storm.
