When it is nice weather at the coast - it is beautiful but when it's not, it can do that in a big way. Yesterday we got at least 6 inches of snow and when you have a driveway that slopes at a 45 deg. angle, you stay home. Snow for an Albertan is nothing but snow at the coast is quite different. It is slushy and a more slippery texture and because people don't know how to drive in it, they abandon their cars on the side of the road and walk home. At this moment, the sun is shining brightly and the water will soon be rushing down the street. By tonight, most of the snow will be gone and it's back to nice again.
