Snow Tuesday

Welp, it's winter in Calgary--ready or not!  It took me quite a while to clear about a foot of snow off my car this morning.  Then I had to venture onto inadequately plowed roads.  White knuckle stuff.


These photos are from the CBC news site--I had my hands full just dealing with snow, photography was out of the question.


Buses were getting stuck all over the place, clogging up the works. 


I'm in bad need of new tires.  I think I'll be stopping in at a tire shop this evening and purchasing my first ever set of snow tires.  I'm driving a longer distance to work now and if this morning was any indication, snow tires are necessary.


What I wouldn't have given to stay home!
