16th January 2009 - Friday

High: 9.5
Low: -6.0
Days we didn't see any sun: (11)
Days swept snow from drive (1)
Days shovelled snow from drive (14)
It was a fairly cloudy start, but the huge chinook arch over the mountains gave the sky a bright glow. We have had some great sunrises this week too (top photo). It was +3 on the drive to work but it still felt a little cool at 8.20am.
The main roads have been clear of snow for a long while now, but the side roads (which don't get cleared) have been melting and it is leaving very thick deep grooves which the cars struggle with and slide around in. We both have all wheel drive vehicles and they have managed quite well, but we have seen a number of cars stuck in the snow and having to be pushed or pulled out.

The cloud had cleared by around 10am and it was a bright and sunny day.
