Snow and foolishness

Our first snowfall of the season. Beautiful if you don't have to be anywhere. But at The Snug this morning tales of cars in ditches and people lamenting not having snow tires and so on and how late the plies were getting in the road

Don't go anywhere if you don't have snow tires. This will all turn to rain and melt soon but it boggles my mind that folks set out on our hilly slippery island with the wrong gear. One of those who went off the road today did so to avoid hitting someone who was stuck on the road. 

Remember your neighbours. You aren't the only one out there.

LATER:  Oh boy.  Between my house and the United Church, 300 meters down the hill there were SEVEN cars either in the ditch or stuck on the side of the road.
