Behind the Plow

I was lucky to follow the plow almost to my workplace when it snowed a couple of weeks ago. It was slow but safe.

Looks like a fine crisp morning, Mary...
Mary MacADNski: Not crisp at all with big, wet snow. It will be crisp tomorrow morning though, our first real cold.
A touch of frost then, Mary?....smile
Mary MacADNski: An unannounced snowstorm. It was supposed to come as rain but a mistake in forecasting the temps messed things up.
Que de neige chez toi !
Mary MacADNski: The worst of the year so far.
Wise choice, Mary!!
Mary MacADNski: I was so lucky - it went by as I was cleaning off the car.

I have never seen a snow plough, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Not hard to imagine as I helped a Malaysian woman the same age as myself in 1972 face her first winter in Canada. She wore hats and gloves all day in our college classes.
Slow is good, Mary. Astrid and I would have done the same.
Mary MacADNski: I felt so lucky! Had I left a few minutes earlier it might have been rough.

You were lucky. Here it has become ridiculously warm
Mary MacADNski: That is exactly how I felt as I just said to a few commenters. Overnight we are to enter our first really cold time but not extrememly cold - minus 5 - 7 over the two or three days.

That looks pretty grim, Mary. Slow but sure - lucky you weren't in front
Mary MacADNski: I was leaving early because of the storm but feel so lucky I left when I did.

Always a good idea, the problem is usually from someone following you too close behind!
Mary MacADNski: I took a shot shortly after this of someone going between me and the plow at a yield sign. I could not believe it and I am confident everyone behind me went into panic mode.
I can understand why you did not try and overtake Mary.
Mary MacADNski: The plow had gone by three hours before and there was quite a bit of accumulation so luck was with me.

It must have been good to have something like that to lead the way Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I felt very special.

A good plan, Mary. Have you seen this from Montreal? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfDZixZFzms
Mary MacADNski: Yes, I had one of the biggest laughs of my life watching people do the same on foot.
Looks like it was a good idea Mary. Here we now have temperatures of 15C which is warm for December!
Mary MacADNski: That is wonderful! I do remember that happening here. I had hatched 1 goose egg amongst my ducks and it still ate grass all through that Dec.
When it's like this over here lots of people don't even go to work, mind you the authorities don't invest in snow ploughs very much, just salt and grit!
Mary MacADNski: If you do not have the proper tires it is a good choice not to go out on roads like this.
slow is safe behind a plow in a snow storm Mary... you sure got dumped on that day....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: Not expected at all. We were to get a few flurries to start, soon turning to rain. Obviously it was a matter of a lower temperature and the weekend weather staff.
