Discover Didsbury ... Agriculture and tourism are two of the most important industries in the area. With almost 2,000 hours annually, you can expect lots of sunshine in the Didsbury area. The annual average temperature ranges from a high of 10.3°C to a low of -2.6°C. The coldest month is January; warmest, July. Temperature ranges in summer (June to August) are from 15° C to 23° C (60° F to 73° F). In winter, (November to February): -8° C to -25° C (18° F to -13° F). Air funnelling through the Rockies also produces warm, dry chinook winds, prevalent in the Didsbury area, that can raise temperatures dramatically within hours.

A nutty addition to a healthy diet- Enjoying a handful of nuts is a pleasure for most people. But the thought of fat in nuts may keep some from savoring that pleasure. Nuts are high in fat, but the fat in most nuts is healthy, monounsaturated fat, which can help lower blood cholesterol. Good sources of monounsaturated fats include peanuts, pecans, walnuts and almonds.

If salad greens are wet and you need them right away, place in a pillow case and spin dry in your washing machine for a few seconds. This hint is especially good to know if you are serving salad to a large crowd.
