I drove my car yesterday, the day before that, and the day before that. And while there was snow on it each morning, it wasn't anything like today. On Saturday and Sunday morningI just brushed off the windows and went about my merry way. So I thought it would be fine this morning when I went to drive to my morning workout. WRONG! From everyone I talk to we've had more snow this winter than in the last 30 years and overnight was the most I've seen in the 2 winters I've been in Billings.

As you can see from the photo above it's now embedded in a snow bank about 2 feet high. For a second I tried to drive it out but realized that was foolish. In the hours since I've seen and heard about a lot of people suffering the same fate.

I actually saw a big Ford truck stuck in a snow bank and thought about getting out of the Cat van (which I was able to drive this morning since it was in the parkade) to help but realized that to do so I would have to park it in a snow bank or leave it running in the middle of the street. Obviously that wasn't an option. I felt bad but I'm sure he made it out eventually.

Good luck to everyone stuck today and here's hoping I don't get a ticket for being parked on Montana Avenue for more than 2 hours today.
