Mr.CBB's Weekly Blog Post Picks

It’s the end of November already and I still can’t believe the ground is not white 3 hours after writing and it’s now snowing like buggery.  

I remember one year when I had come to Canada right in the midst of Winter.

We had driven to the relatives for Christmas Holidays and all was well until the return trip.

Not only was I in a new country but I was driving on the 400 series highway for the first time in the middle of a winter storm.

Oh ya, can you say I was trying to be strong for Mrs.CBB who was near faint as she hates winter driving but I also wasn’t ready for this surreal driving experience.

Put it this way, I never owned a pair of winter tires in the UK because I simply did not need them. There was not enough snow ever to justify having them.

So, a 2 hour journey took me about 5 hours with white-outs and  trying to stay on the road (there were no lines) and praying that we made it home safe.

That journey, those 5 hours made me a stronger person. It made me realize that there are many people who put their lives at risk driving for a living or simply driving in the winter just because we have to. It’s so important to slow down when driving and what I like to say “have a minute to live“.

So as the snow falls please take the time and precautions necessary to stay safe this winter season while driving.
