Driving in the Fraser Valley is less than ideal.

This is what it looked like to drive to work this morning.  My school, and district, had a snow day but the teachers did not have the day off, so off I went.  My friend and colleague, Kris, and I drove to work in his truck.  It was kind of nice, if treacherous.  I’m not looking forward to going to school tomorrow as the weather and roads haven’t really changed, but I guess I’ll wait and see how everything turns out.

On the way home, we were treated to the undercarriage of a semi-truck and an overturned Ford Explorer.  The safety gear stood out nicely against the snow.

How’s the winter driving for you?  I hope it’s better than this.

    • Yeah. Beautiful and dangerous. There’s little better in the world than that combination.

    • Me too. The chaos that ensues around here when snow falls means that there are rarely any clear details about anyone. In the past two days I’ve seen four cars upside-down and two on their sides in the ditches along the highway. And that’s in a 25 kilometer span. A little prayer escapes my brain every time I pass a vehicle like that.

  4. We have been telling the people here about your weather and they just stand there in disbelief…
    how could it be so cold although they like the thought of seeing snow for the first time!
    Take care….

    I wish this would happen in Lisbon. I love seeing snow.

    • I love seeing it too. I just really don’t like driving in it.
