Oh absolutly I wouldn't mind sharing this snow at all! Not one bit!

I still have a crap load of shoveling to do. My truck is still buried and the gate to the horses. I did manage to get to their waterer.

Ugh! I hate snow! On Friday we went to Calgary and the highway was so terribly icy and literally almost no visability! We had to go between 40 -60 km. Most of the way!! We watched cars fly into the ditch, counted over 20 cars in the ditch and barely made the turn to Calgary before the highway was shut down for hours because of all the accidents. 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.

Wow. We only have an inch here. But are expecting around 10 inches on Wednesday. I don't like cold weather at all!
