day 1631 – shadow bae


congrats to my shadow for making the eighty grand mark. thankful for putting up with me through my often speedy yet efficient and aggressive driving. it has carried me and my mountains of equipment to and from places; it has even taken me to new heights i never thought reachable. aside from the times when there’s anything more than a speckle of snow, i have been served well. i look forward to the many more places we’ll go together

day 1283 – february snow

the forecast was correct and vancouver indeed got its february snowfall overnight. we were forewarned about the precipitation, but the city did nothing to prepare for this snowfall. there was no signs of salted roads nor trucks shovelling snow. as a result, the road conditions was much worse than it needed to be and more car accidents than there should have been. my hour drive home from richmond back to vancouver was full of skidding

the first snowfall of the vancouver winter came early this year, but the snow is better seen and felt up on the mountain. waking up and seeing snow covered ground is a good sign and a bad sign. i didn’t think i’d make it to work this morning as shadow skidded numerous times and even got stuck. snows accounts for terrible driving conditions where my odometer halved and my commute tripling in time

day 134 – miss you at times like this

winter has begun and my beemer is skidding an sliding even on very thin snow. this is when i really miss my old all wheel drive acura and its snow tires. i am not looking forward to anymore snow in the city but please snow more on the mountain top because i cannot afford to be trapped at home on snowy days. i can already fore see winter seasons giving more problems than my car can handle
