Ok, so as I spoke of before
, we have my eldest son here for the first part of March Break...
First, I had to go get him. Friday morning was a little dicey as I was trying to out run a snowsquall
. Once I passed Gravenhurst, it was smooth sailing all the way to North Bay.
I had enough time to have a coffee with a long time friend then I picked him up at school, picked up his gear and got some gas for the treck back.
That's when it went all, um, Northerny on us. In the matter of time it took to fill harmless, the place was covered in about 1/2 of snow. It was coming down HARD. So much for out running the snowsquall! It found me!
The next hour and a half was spent driving in near 0 visibility. This stuff made the stuff Garnet and Co faced during our G2G seem pleasant. I focussed on keeping harmless on the road and I tasked my son to keep an eye out for "shadows" of any vehicle that would be ahead of us. They were shutting down the highway ramps behind us - that's how bad it was.
Well, this system took 4 swipes at us. 4 times I thought, yep, that's it, we're camping out for a few hours. But we made it and harmless wore it well.
If you're weak of stomach, I advise you not to look at the next pictures. harmless IS dirty. Very, very dirty.
The slush was freezing to harmless as we drove! She had a 1/4 layer of ice and snow all over her most of the ride home. This is what she looked like when we got to Walmart here. She'd had grown a layer of "scales"!
