Snowstorm ends Calgary's streak of spring-like weather on St. Patrick's Day

So much for the luck of the Irish.
The return of winter weather Thursday morning brought Calgary's streak of spring-like conditions to an end, just in time for St. Patrick's Day.

Blowing snow reduced visibility and made for a slow commute on several major routes in and around the city as a spring storm moved around the area.
Calgary Transit tweeted that the snowy conditions caused delays on most bus routes.
EMS officials said they responded to about 10 collisions by 7 a.m., most of them without injuries.
Commuters report slow-moving traffic from Airdrie to Calgary along the QEII, and within the city on Deerfoot Trail.
Due to the current weather conditions, we are experiencing delays on most bus routes. We apologize for long wait times—@calgarytransit
