What a Wicked storm, pretty much everything is shut down. Highways, public transport, schools.... More than 100 people have to stay at Cosco (at the city limits) tonight for they are stranded at the store. The Airport is full of overnighters, and closed. My sister inlaw and husband have to stay there overnight as he works there ans they can't leave.
My wife came and picked me up at about 2:00, as I could not bike home, and we were told to leave work as soon as we could.... Good thing for 4 wheels drives.
It was snowing and blowing snow with High winds and a temperature of -24C
The following is the list of closures at 3:00 p.m. today due to the blizzard:

We just got home, I ran in and got the camera, already the truck is already showing a dusting of snow like it's been parked for a few hours. Darn, I just shoveled the other day too!
Numbers changed to protect the silly....
I knew there was a storm warning today as I headed out to work, and knew it would be a tough slog. I have been riding to work everyday, spring, rain, shine, summer and winter, I just hate giving in.... But today I would have been a hazard on the roads to myself and others.
Other than that it was nice to get off work early. I went for a walk as it was too nice to be stuck inside
