    Bow trail hill just West of Sarcee was a nightmare. Cars stuck halfway up, spinning tires etc.

    The Outback with Goodyear Ultra Grip's had no issues at all.

    Don't forget your hazards. They are real useful to remind people that you are in Canada.

    There are still 5-10 cars stuck on the "hill" (can't really even call it that) directly out front of my house spinning their tires. I listened to one Nissan Cube rev the hell out of his engine and spin the tires for about 45 minutes. I would have tried to push the miserable bastard but my knee is wrecked.


    I love having 4WD and great tires.. snow storms always puts a huge smile on my face

    I gave up trying to go around all the idiots who wondered why they are stuck.

    I even rolled down and yelled at some people as I went by, "get winter tires"

    I've noticed so much of this. Lots of vehicles that are capable of getting unstuck but fail due to operator incompetence

    Deerfoot was f*cked though.. Deerfoot Meadows looking south on Deerfoot I could see Northbound was dead stopped bumper to bumper.

I can't imagine what it was like later on at 6pm.

    I had an Audi for years, but it was as heavy as a fucking panzer. Nice and light saabaru feels much better in these conditions.

    I took s/b blackfoot at around 6:20, and there were emergency crews blocking off both lanes about 500m before the Deerfoot ramps, sucked for the north bound folk, that's for sure.

    Only took me 10 minutes longer to get home from the airport to Heritage/Macleod.

    Weird, was able to get around quite fine in either of our vehicles in Calgary today both which happen to be shod with all seasons. Did stop to help push some drivers stuck on hills on vehicles shod with winters, guess sometimes the tires do not benefit the driver inside.

    Yeah getting up to the hill was retarded. Once I was on the hill I was fine, quattro and winter tires FTW! I don't understand people who think they can get by with all seasons in this city.

    Went out for a drive around the nw, counted 8 dumbass people with no lights on. The worst was a guy driving 25 with no lights or tail lights on northmount drive.

    I saw some neighbors doing a move today, looked miserable.

    I've moved in snow, but never with this windchill.

    My shop was super cold today, took till noon for it to warm up past 10c

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Just got to sunshine. Watch out on the corners on Highway 1 but most of it was fine. I did a mix of 80k/h to 110 depending on conditions. It only got bad once you hit Yumanuska.
    If you get angry at my post please re-read as a joke or sarcasm.
