Sure enough it was pretty snowy and windy overnight and into the morning but I was only 9 minutes away (in good weather) from her house so I left an hour early since i had no idea where I was going or where to park or what the roads were like. I found it easy, love the GPS on my phone. got parked and in the building. Then had no idea where to go, was harder to find it inside then it was to find the building, so I called them and she told me past the bank across the +15 and they are on the right. I was laughing at the bank, cause after all I was in bankers hall, lol. But I did find it and was there half hour early, oh well, better early than late. I got in early and he was really a cool doctor, took more x-rays then told me exactly what he was doing, and as he was working he kept talking to me. If it wasn't for my jaw getting sore from being open so long, I coulda had a nap. I like there were a lot less power tools than a filling, i actually preferred it even if it took longer. And the weird rubber things they used to fill the holes were neat too, I wish I coulda watched.
Afterwards had paid parking till 2 so shopped around a bit then headed back to Heidi's cause it was obviously not getting better so I decided to stay another day. I had planned for this and brought an extra day of clothes. I kinda thought it was gonna clear off by Tuesday morning and I would head home and hope it was nice Wed to ride....haha. On Monday night the RCMP closed all the roads out of Drumheller, you had to have special permission to leave town that's how bad all the roads were.And so roads looked bad on Tues morning and so I stayed put. My sister worked but they had 3 people on and no one was coming in so she left them working and came home after 6 hours. She brought lunch and we played video games all afternoon and evening, it was a lot of fun, been a while since I didn't have anything I could do.
(the worst corner)
(how most roads were)
(our gravel road, looks icy but just super sunny)
But this morning I got up and the sun was shining and the wind wasn't blowing so I looked at all the weather reports and roads looked pretty good, so after 11 (I waited till all the rush hour traffic was gone) and headed out. The roads were really well clear through the city and then out of the city was good till I got to the Beisiker corner. That corner is notoriously bad for snow buildup and it lived up to its name again. From there too Rosebud was pretty good with spots where there was too much snow and no room in the ditch that is was piled up on the road. But it was still passable and not slippery. From Rosebud through Drum and hom was all clear. Our gravel road even had very little snow but our Texas gate was snowed it but soft so I made it through and our yard probly had the worst of it. Neil plowed it all out the day before but he said 4 foot drifts from house to shop. I am glad he cleaned it out so I could get in.

(frosty hungry bulls)
(the cool snow by the windbreak...with Kali in the background)
(Kali not sure what shes doing)
( Not much wasted feed for them, kinda wish there was more so they could lay in it)
(Jess in the sunshine, wishin she was out in the field)
