Not sure how I missed this but here goes
Hello Calgary, Alberta, Canada
I have lived in this great city since 1985. My first thoughts were that it was way too big. 650000 people back in 85 and today it is over 1.4 million. I quickly grew to enjoy the size as it brought with it major sporting events and concerts. It takes less that 20 minutes to escape the city in any direction and we are less than 1 hour to the rocky mountains. The city is famous for the Calgary Stampede which is a yearly event that attracts people for all over the globe and features the largest rodeo in the world dating back to 1912
My favorite part of the where I live is the 4 distinct seasons.
We have many chinook winds that create tempature swings from -20celcius to plus 10 celcius. ( -4 f to plus 60 f) in 24 hours
