Spring Theme #282

Posted in Photography on March 23, 2011 by paintedmeadows

I took these following pictures yesterday so you can see what our spring is like in northern Alberta!  This is our range road.  You can’t really see the depth of the snow but that car is on the road, not sunk in the ditch.  I thought she was in the ditch until the plow finally came.  I drive a big 4×4 so was doing OK but still had a hard time and used 4×4 low.

This was our secondary highway.  Lots of glare ice with the snow on top and no salt or sand yet.  Kind of scarey when you have an empty truck box.  I slipped and slid some but drove slow and took my time.  Here I had pulled over to let a big piece of oilfield equipment to pass.  I was screwing up courage to head out again and not go home.  I left the pictures dark because this is exactly how it looked.  It was windy, snow was drifting and it was snowing steadily although small flakes so it made the air look more foggy.
