Home... Safe and Sound!

At about 10:00am this morning the snow began to clear a bit so I packed Spencer and up from our overnight stay at the hotel. We packed up the Jeep and off we adventured towards Calgary. We arrived at the airport in Calgary about 12:30pm after witnessing 60... yes 60 vehicles (I counted!) in the ditch between Claresholm and Calgary. Mostly cars, the odd pick up truck and a handful of jack-knifed transports. We even saw a transport that had tipped on its side in the ditch at the base of bridge.

We picked up Christie and Mark at the the airport and then went to eat lunch. At about 2:00pm we left Calgary. The winds were high and they whipped up the snow all around us. We had maybe one spot of white out just before getting to Fort MacLeod. The snow on Highway 3 going into the Pass was a little more caked to the road then on Highway 2 down from Calgary so we took our time. We finally arrived home at 5:30pm in BC. Safe and sound.
