Saturday Afternoon Drive

We drove out to Carman today and experienced such varied road conditions that I was compelled to document it. 

Part of the journey - in the open areas - it was snow- packed with icy hard drifts and winds gusting so hard (up to 63 km/hour) that they nearly pushed our car into oncoming traffic. 

In sheltered areas the road were bare and dry. 

The difference between the two was very sudden and clearly marked. 

We made it home safely but not everyone did; we saw an accident with emergency vehicles on scene and later another car in the ditch.
