Say it ain't snow: Wintry first day of fall in the Prairies

We can avoid thinking about the cold for as long as we want but winter is coming. For the prairies, it seems to have started a bit early!

People from across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta snapped pictures of the mini-snowpocalypse on Saturday.

The snowfall amounts were so significant that they toppled trees and took out power lines in parts of Manitoba, forcing some residents to spend the night in the dark.
