I guess the weather here in Edmonton is just getting me ready for what’s coming when I get to Inuvik. It was a very cold minus 24 this morning when I left the house, and the high was apparently only minus 17. In addition to being pretty darn cold, the roads were extremely slippery. I drove to school today (instead of taking the LRT) which meant that I took the Whitemud. Near the 91st street exit, I saw a car going in the same direction as me spin out and hit the barrier. It looked like he was trying to change lanes, but I can’t be sure. Obviously he was going too fast, and he paid the price – the left front side of the car did not look good at all.
So bundle up, and drive for the conditions!
