The Calm After the Storm

After last week’s Snow Wussies, a comment on the aftermath:

Now that the roads are plowed and sanded and the sidewalks have been cleared, everything is back to more-or-less normal.

A couple weeks ago, when we got the first big snow in Kamloops, it was treacherous doing my laundry. The apartment complex that I live in has land that slopes rather steeply. The fresh snow got packed into slipperiness very quickly. Naturally, I was careful. At one point, I went a slightly longer way back to my apartment, because I would be on fairly level ground. That was when I had my worst slip and went down hard. Last weekend, getting to the complex laundry was positively uneventful.

And how is your winter going?
