rain on mushy snow, oh no!

By: bawlf , 2:52 PM GMT on November 28, 2013

At 7:49 AM temperature is -10 C (14 F) with a SE wind of 8.2 km making it feel like -15 C. Sunrise will be at 08:24 PM and sunset 04:22 PM. Overcast with a chance of snow and rain showers in the afternoon. High of 1C. Breezy. Winds from the South at 10 to 20 km/h. Chance of snow 40%.

Oh no! Rain showers in the late afternoon, one of the worst conditions that a commuter can experience. The only saving grace is that the forecast will be correct of at least 1 C and that there will be no winds that might chill the air down. Edmonton's streets, other than the main arteries, have about 4 to 5 inches of slushy snow. Not wanting that to get capped with crusty freezing rain. We are having more 'like normal' temps for November now. Hopefully, this will continue. Or as some are wont to say, "We live in Northern Canada - suck it up and get over it."

Good morning Bawlf.
That slush is terrible stuff to drive in.
I remember hydroplaning on the stuff and hitting the ditch. I did good driving in the ditch looking for a spot to that wasn't to steep to get out. I finally hit a soft spot and got stuck. The tow truck operator couldn't figure out how I'd gotten so far off the road.
Abbey's always off lease for 1/2 of our trek along the gopher trails and only once has not come running when I whistle. On that trip she spent the rest of the time on a very short lease. She knew she had failed the alpha person in her pack. She'll even break off a bunny chase when I whistle now.
Be sure to keep the slushy stuff on your side of the eastern Alberta border.
take care if you have to venture out onto the roads.

Good evening Bawlf.
Abbey is still out looking for gopher holes but like you there all covered in snow.
She did catch a glimpse of a bunny though but was still on the lease and couldn't pursue it.
That dog will never learn that an 80 pound dog running and sinking in deep snow will never catch a bunny running on the top of the white stuff.
