The air bites.
Our breath smokes
Winter’s long wait is over.
Not on this end, not yet at least.
A sure sign of the season- The TransCanada Highway between work and home was closed today. Luckily there’s an alternate route though it’s twice as long. (40 mins instead of 20- many people could only dream of such a short commute).
Just watched an episode of “highway thru hell” covering the snowy rescues on the Coquihalla Highway…..
Lots of snow!
Oh yeah. We know a few people who’ve gotten into winter accidents on the Coq. It’s scary at times. We don’t often go that direction in winter, though. The stretch of TCH between Salmon Arm and Revelstoke is also really bad for winter accidents, and my route home from work in Sicamous is routinely closed 3 or 4 times each winter, usually because a semi was going too fast and ends up in the ditch and across the highway. The first closure for this school year was yesterday, which is early.
Wow – part of living in that awesome great white North!!
The Polar Vortex is rearing to go.
Lucky you! So wish I still lived in the hemisphere with Winter coming. We are already in the upper 30 degrees C – hate hot, humid weather!
That’s July here. We get 4 very distinctive seasons, but despite snow, we rarely hit -20C in a winter, unlike Northern BC where we’d hit -40C…
