A Winters Day In Alberta
This morning when I drove into the drive where I was taking my class at I glanced in my rear view mirror and this is what I seen, a beautiful sunrise.
Once class was over, at about 3pm I was leaving and this was what it looked like...
It looked beautiful but it was freezing, the wind was blowing and visibility was poor. The traffic was crawling, the roads were like a skating rink before the Zamboni cleans the ice. The weather conditions added close to 3/4 of an hour to my drive so I had plenty of time to snap photos, we just weren't moving on one particular road. I noticed while I was sitting on the overpass that the traffic was backed up for miles.
What was interesting is that the traffic was only backed up one way. People going home after work, I guess that nobody lives in West Edmonton, that appears to be the only lane not congested.
The walks have been shoveled twice tonight and need it again but it's going to have to wait until morning now. Yup, just another winter day in Alberta!
