I thing we are up to 4" or so here in Richmond. The streets are pretty decent though and the load of paving stones in the back of the wagon is giving me all the traction I need. I just need to stay away from those big, honkin' trucks! A 5 ton dropped his drive shaft in the middle of #5 road this morning and stopped like BAM! The guys behind him couldn't and there was a nasty string of accidents.

I was watching the news the other day and this bit came on abouuut the South Asian grocery stores in Vancouver; Fraser, Main, Victoria, and I'm sure Surrey etc. They were speaking abouuut Dopa. They then showed pictures (videos) of Poppy pods and stems. This is ground up into a powder and sold over the counter in the GVRD. I am talking about pure Opium. Well all I have to say is it explained a lot to me abouut the never ending incidents of dump trucks, cabs, vans, etc being involved in fatal accidents around here.

We've got 2" of fresh snow here in Richmond already and it's just 12pm. Boy, shovelling snow tomorrow is going to be a pain! I have to be at work at 8:30 am too!

Yah, I just drove home and it is even warm in White Rock, with the sun out.

Sunday will be interesting, as Matt and I are headed up to Barnes Lake, for the Ice Race Enduro..supposed to be -12C.

I have to go dig out my down pull over, body warmer packs, fuel up the camp stove for some hot chocolate....

AH Barnes in winter.... I recall several SUNNY weekends aproaching -20 that were pleasant with sweater and toque, if the wind was down. Hope you have a great day out Keith.
