This last weekend was a long weekend with the Monday being a holiday. I took a quick run to Ainsworth Hot Springs in British Columbia for two nights. Food in their restaurant was very very good. The hot springs were enjoyable. It was overcast and a little rain, then again it is February.
I frequently check weather reports if I am going anywhere in the winter. There were no issues until I woke up early Monday, checked the weather on my phone, and noticed there were heavy snowfall warnings in the afternoon for where I was staying and the route I intended to take back. I had intended to go north through Nakusp, Revelstoke, Golden, Lake Louise, Banff, Calgary, then north home. Even Calgary was listed with a weather advisory. No such listings for going back the way I came, so I crossed the ferry at Balfour, then to Creston, Cranbrook, Crowsnest Pass, and north on Highway 2 home. I ran into a snowstorm in the Crowsnest Pass, weather got better further east, the rest of the way was some falling snow and some reduced visibility. It just took longer. Otherwise a fine trip.
While at the resort I ordered a gin martini because I have never had a martini before and thought I would try one. I learned I do not like martinis.
