A late-season storm moved into Alberta early Saturday, prompting winter weather warnings from Environment Canada and Climate Change.

West of Coalhurst, the O'Donnell family was in the midst of calving season when the blizzard hit. The family had a challenge recovering the calves which were buried in the snow. Fortunately, the cows and calves survived.
