Well, here we are… Winter is upon us. Snow has been on the ground and its been colder than Satan’s testicles for a couple of weeks now, and we’ve had some nasty days of blowing winds, drifting snow and the usual plethora of highway closures and accidents that usually don’t really seem to hit until later in the season. But for some reason, it came out of the blue and struck like thunder. Now, Saskatchewan is blanketed in a sheet of white shit that makes everything more difficult. I know there are some who enjoy the snowy weather but when it comes to travelling, working and trying to keep one’s family warm, the hallmark scenery just isn’t worth it.
We’ve reached the point where my eye injections fall in the snowy months. And as luck would have it, the weather forecast for this morning calls for snow. Luckily, I keep myself pretty well-equipped for winter travel. Besides the very lovely quilted blanket my wife keeps in the vehicle, I also keep certain key pieces of emergency equipment that ensures I can handle most obstacles that winter may throw my way. I haven’t taken a solid look outside yet but I’m pretty sure that it’s cold as shit. I haven’t taken note of whether it’s snowing yet or not. Either way, this post will be short and sweet as I still have some packing and prepping to do before I hit the road. Here’s hoping the roads are dry and clear. ☯️
