Winter arrived this weekend with a vengeance. Fortunately, I've taken four days in a row off work and therefore didn't need to leave the house in the thick of it. I went out on Saturday, and had no problem, but that's only because I have a 4x4. Without it, I would have turned around and stayed home. I understand it was 31 degrees below zero last night. OUCH. The bad news is that 5 homes burnt down on the weekend, as the firetrucks couldn't get to them. and apparently, EMS workers were leaving their ambulances and hiking to their patients. Not good, not good at all. I'm going out again soon, need to mail some parcels. I'm not worried, except about the other drivers. The ones who have bald summer tires and snowflakes-for-brains. That was me once, so I know whereof I speak.
Let's see, how many hats should I wear? How many coats? Do I wear runners or boots? AH, glorious winter in the great white north! By the way, that bus? and those cars? They were submerged shortly after this photo was taken.
