If we had been on the highway a few more minutes we would have been stuck! We came back yesterday and it was much better weather. But at home we had about 10 feet of snow - well maybe that is a little bit of an exaggeration! Really though - it is so deep. I'm already tired of winter!
Glad you made it ok. I was at home when the storm hit and managed to not make it to work that day (YAY day off!). I know they closed HWY 2 south of Calgary which prevented me leaving town.
My brother hit the ditch as well on his way home from work(before the storm hit), and I can only imagine of all the cars still left in the ditch. Glad you made it ok tho.
Safe travels everyone.
