Helllllooooo Winter

I don't normally head out on the highways with my car when there's a snow warning, however I had no choice due to a family emergency. I left last night, roads clear to the farm, went up to the hospital (all is good) this am, fine, got back to this.....



Hoping things clear to get home tomorrow!

In 5 hours, there's 4" of snow on the ground. I went out to turn the car around, driveway is on a slope so wanted to make sure I'd have a good run to get out. Love my Blizzaks! No problem!

If it gets deeper than the splitter, I will be staying here...

More pics - I won't use a snow brush on her, used my jacket and hands, hope you can see how much snow we've received in a few hours

that's definitely a long winter, we usually don't see any snowstorms until mid December.

Don't think I'm going home today, snow is covering the splitter. I wiped all the snow off last night and its covered again, plus the wind has created drifts. Fisrt snow day of the year!

Unless one of my parents neighbours come down, I'm stuck. Snow is up to my knees in their driveway. Not sure what the highway is like, will check later! Started the car and let her run for a few mins!

If this is indicative of what winter is going to look like this, its gonna be a long one!

We did have a nice autumn this year.

Finally got out late this morning, neighbour plowed the driveway, the dirt road was done last night. Secondary highways are a bit scary, but once I hit the #2, clear sailing!

That's the first time since my parents moved out 16 years ago that I've ever been snowed in. Wouldn't have mattered what vehicle was there, except a pick up truck, it wouldn't have moved.

She's gonna need a bath though!!

It was snowing here in SLC yesterday; enough to cover the grass but not the roads. The mountains were getting pounded though. Not looking forward to more..

Best regards,

And here I just cut the grass yesterday!

I grew up in Calgary, don't miss the weather in the least.
Heck I remember trick or treating with a few inches of snow on the ground.
At least you get "Chinooks", the snow will probably be gone soon.

The Chinooks haven't been as significant over the past few years. Its been decent this week, snow still on the ground, but the roads are clear, more snow today and on the weekend!!

You get those days on end rains...not sure which is worse, but at least you can still drive your car!!! Was out that way last year and hit the last big winter storm while in Tofino! Crazy weather but cool to watch!!!

I've had my winter tires on for like a month now just waiting for the snow to hit. What I'd give for even a little bit of snow.

We're lucky here in Victoria, we actually get less rain than Vancouver.
Heck, at least you don't have to shovel rain
