Yesterday was our first snowfall of the season here in Halifax. We had an appointment with our lawyer yesterday at 4pm about the closing of our home next Monday. Getting there was no problem at all (there in less than 21 minutes, even with the snowy rotten roads).
Getting home? Another matter altogether. That same drive took over 3 hours and 35 minutes (even more if you count the 50 minutes we took to get out of traffic and eat dinner at East Side Mario's). At one point, we sat in the same spot for over 40 minutes and didn't move an inch....
I have driven in Montreal, Toronto and Boston, and I have never been in traffic for that long in either of those cities.
Thank God it's over, we got home safe and Halifax is due to return to its balmy ways soon. Safe driving all!
PS. Need snow tires? We got a great deal and fab service from the Halifax guys. Highly recommend them!
