Today I was going to write something about coffee and when you like to tip that first hot mug back but one look out the window this morning and realized we’re talking snow today! Being a first time homeowner the realization of snow shovelling set in. My driveway was completely blocked thanks to a swirling northwest wind and I didn’t realize how much driveway I actually had until I started throwing snow. I now understand why snowblowers were invented and I may have to phone our ol’ flea market friend, Bill, to see if he’s got a snowblower for sale. What am I thinking, of course he does!
I live in the north end of the city so the commute this morning downtown was slow to say the least thanks to blowing snow, ice patches, and slippery sections. I have to applaud Regina drivers. In this day and age of hustle and bustle, drivers were driving respectful and at an acceptable speed given the conditions. We’re all guilty of wanting to get going somewhere fast and patience tends to run short behind the wheel. But today, it was different. I noticed people were driving slow, letting other drivers in, and not running the orange and red lights like I see most mornings! Drivers were turning slow at intersections and pedestrians actually looked both ways before stepping out on to the street.

We live in a northern country where winter is guaranteed every year. It’s unfortunate when accidents happen especially when they are fatal, but a lot (not all) are certainly avoidable by just slowing down. Hopefully the good driving habits I saw this morning along Broad street continues throughout the winter months. Drive carefully today!
