Yesterday we had a heavy snowfall warning. Last night after work it was nice enough in Airdrie so I was dumb enough to drive to Calgary to look at a 2007 Dodge Dakota manual transmission rear-wheel drive extended cab that looked in excellent shape from the description and posted photos. I do not live far from Calgary so I thought I would take a look. Once I got there the weather quickly got worse. It was snowing hard and it was making the roads icy. I made it to see the truck and turned back right away. The interior looked great. The owner hid the fact that there was noticeable rust over the rear passenger side wheel well. Definitely not interested.
I drove under the speed limit coming back. I have seen what happens to vehicles when they lose control on ice at highway speed. I saw only one car in the ditch. The weather had threatened to hit us with 10-15cm of snow. I went to sleep with it still snowing.
I woke up to see far less snow than forecast in my area. Now it is sunny, above freezing, and melting. The roofers still have not finished replacing the tar and gravel roof where I work. With the recent snowfall and it melting we now have multiple leaks in the ceiling and we have run out of buckets to catch the drips. Personally I thought stripping off a roof and replacing it during the tail end of winter was the wrong time of year for this project. Then again I never claimed to be a roofing expert.
