Snow in Calgary

I've been away from the blog-o-sphere for a few days, as it has been positively hectic.

We had a big dump of snow the night before last. I took some photos but haven't had time to download them yet. Will soon....

My car was grumbling in a pained way the night of the snow. (Brakes? Tires?) It doesn't seem to like stopping on ice very much. The tires are brand new this year, so we'll have to see what the problem is. I just got it in April, having bought it from my older brother and his wife, who were the original owners. I know they took care of it, so hopefully it's just maintenance stuff.

So yesterday, I took the bus, opting to leave the car in the driveway. The roads out of my community were positively nasty yesterday and I was just as happy to let someone else do the driving.

Needless to say, the outdoor run did not happen. The streets were too icy and much as I was itching to get outside, I decided that would not be so smart. So… 25 laps around the track it was. At least I managed to count them right!

The roads seem a bit better now, so unless it snows again, maybe I’ll get outside for a run on the weekend.

Will try to post pictures of the snow soon…

You got snow before us!? It certainly has been trying to snow around here, but no such luck yet. My kids are checking anxiously every morning.

Our vehicle doesn't like the cold either... that's a very unfortunate quirk in Alberta. Best of luck with yours, and congratulations on keeping count of your laps!

Snow, snow, snow! I need to break out the movie version of "White Christmas" soon - which was based on the original "Holiday Inn" starring Fred Astaire. Big fan of Fred's. Cried buckets when he passed. Sorry, not really anything to do with your post - meanderings, really. Ah well, to bed.
