    I'd dive in. This morning I had to go and see my Chiropractor.
    After my appointent, I was able to crawl out of deep snow while doing a U turn.
    On the drive back I saw a old Range Rover Discovery broken down on Elbow. Someone missed their exit on 130th turn off (DF)and tried to dive across. But then had the sudden realisation on how low their car is vs the pile of snow. Two other trucks stopped in the most stupid manner to help. It could have caused a further accident.

    Two busses were stuck on my road. Then a mini van tried to turn into my condo complex or do a U turn(?). A bunch of people came out to help push the poor bugger back.
    I turned in with ease and everyone looked with shock and aww how my mighty Zonda ploughed through..

    Beer in particular, I have enough scotch to get through the apocolypse fortunately.
    Can I recommend the Parallel - 49 holiday pack?

    From what I read I’d be better off with a flat of lucky.

    I just drove down the street to see how bad it was. And to do some drifting. Reward for all that shoveling.

    Snowblower was useless today.

    We are not Ontario - where did you hear that Alberta is under lockdown conditions? People still go to work and drop kids off at daycare.

    Surely some of you are required in the office to maintain operational effectiveness?

    So jealous of your snowfall, Edmonton hasn't gotten much to play in this year. Dumps like these are exactly why I bought a missile car to fuck around with.

    Why is that? I picked up Spiker's old blower. While its not the best, with 2.5ft high drifts against my garage door I'm glad I had it.

    Probably because I’m calling my leaf blower a snow blower.

    Spent 2.5 hours towing vehicles, pushing vehicles, and shovelling the alley behind our building because nobody could get in and out of the parkade. Made it almost a km towing a UPS truck backwards but buddy had no idea how to turn his wheel in reverse so eventually I gave up before we made it back to the main road because all he could do was turn the steering into the curb and nothing else.

    There isn't a lockdown. At least not in Alberta. Stores are open, restaurants allow take-out, businesses can have anyone they feel work in person.

    Shit, you can go have social visits to people who live alone.

    There is no lockdown.
