Monday, 30 November 2020: our temperature just after noon is PLUS 2C (windchill 0C). Sunrise is at 8:17 am and sunset is at 4:32 pm. A very overcast day today. "A bitterly cold winter is expected across Alberta with above normal snowfall across the southern half of the province. However, the first half of December will be a dramatic contrast to the rest of the season, as it will feel more like autumn with very mild temperatures and even some record warmth. However, we expect that a much colder pattern will develop during the second half of December and this frigid pattern should continue to dominate through January and February, with a heightened risk for extended periods of severe cold and dangerous wind chills." From the Weather Network. The day before yesterday, 28 November 2020, I ended up going for a drive east of the city. The forecast was for a sunny day, so I thought it would make sense to make the most of it. So far, it looks like this coming week will be good weather, too, with temperatures above 0C. Just too bad that the day starts getting dark so early - how I miss, just like everybody does, those missing six or so hours of daylight at the end of the day. Mustn't complain, though, as I always feel so lucky that I am able to get out into the countryside and see what I can find .... or can't find, like Snowy Owls! No luck so far. The only birds that I did see were Magpies and a small flock of Pigeons in flight. So, it turned out to be yet another barn day, which is always a happy day. This time, I had already seen and photographed each of the old barns on previous occasions. Need to see some new ones! “The $1.4-billion plant in east Calgary is capable of generating more than 800 megawatts of electricity for the provincial grid, the city-owned utility company said in a release. 'The facility is the largest of its kind in the province and an important step in Alberta's transition away from aging coal-fired generation facilities,' Enmax said. Enmax announced the project in 2007 and it became a joint venture with Edmonton-based Capital Power Corporation as a 50 per cent owner in late 2012. It uses combined-cycle technology that has two combustion turbines to generate electricity while making use of waste heat through a steam turbine for extra power production. The centre is about 30 per cent more efficient than conventional coal plants and will emit less than half the CO2 per megawatt hour, as well as less carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide gases, Enmax says. Its cooling towers will also use 14 million litres of reclaimed water per day from the city’s Bonnybrook wastewater treatment plant, the company says. "With this crucial infrastructure added to Alberta's electricity system, we will bring reliable electricity to Albertans for decades to come,” said Enmax CEO Gianna Manes in a release.” Grand opening video
