    Will winter ever end in Calgary :(

    After a heavy snowfall in recent days, today I was confronted with very evil freezing fog.

    The roads were pure ice. Look at the surfaces on this photo .. and note my speed (this is in KM). Even to keep my car at this speed, the rear end of my car was still drifting out big time. I'm still on Blizzaks, too.. which have proven to be quite useless on a RWD car in Calgary.

    And this was yesterday, walking through the lot at work .. I HATE SNOW. It's supposed to be SPRING FFS.

    Anybody who works in IT, in a hot place .. I'll be happy to swap with you!

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I can confirm that global warming has not arrived in Calgary. If it does, it will be welcomed with open arms!

    Still snowing Click here to enlarge I'm actually sat here waiting for the temperature to rise to 1 oC so that I can go to the wand wash, and return to my garage to detail it before the water freezes!

    My car is the dirtiest it's ever been .. I will be sure to take before-and-afters.

    This really sucks .. I'd be out of this place in a heartbeat if my wife/daughter were not so adamant on staying Click here to enlarge

    I hate days like today .. the snow has half-melted, but frozen overnight .. having to hear the crunching noise as the bottom of my car hits the frozen ice.
