Snow Day

I departed the town of Terrace late yesterday morning after a one hour recording session at CFTKTV (thank you Sarah) also a quick radio and newspaper interview and a meeting with Chief Klein.

Due to the late start Terrace Fire Command transported me to St Croix creek, 30 k out. It was a great day for biking, the road was bare and dry all the way to New Hazleton. Little did I know that it would snow overnight in Hazleton and I awoke to 3 inches of the white stuff.

A few miles out of town the temperature dropped and the snow started again, but I had a surprise visitor in FF Darren Andreychuk who pulled over and offered me a hot coffee and a cookie, nice! 1920202_10151874646502202_1386740528_n

The weather took a turn for the worst around Morristown, heavy snow, and limited visibility and ice under the snow on the shoulder made biking very difficult and dangerous. A passing motorist stopped me and offered a ride, which I accepted, safety first!1797435_10151874649557202_298034684_n

I arrived in Smither’s went straight to the Fire Hall for a meeting with Chief Keith and Deputy Kelly discussing FD operations and discovered that we have many similarities and challenges etc
Next had a bacon cheese burger at the Alpenhorn Bistro, so far the best on Highway 16 (not counting Shirley’s)
It is still snowing, so tomorrow could be interesting, hopefully the plows are out?

  1. Congrats on your ride Greg!!! I certainly commend you on all of your fundraising over the years!!! WOW!!!! You don’t know me but I’m sure we know some of the same people as I use to work at the Alberta Emergency Management Agency. I say “use to work there”, that was until I had a nasty MS attack back in 2009 that has now kept me from working unfortunately. Oh well I make the very best of each day and just keep on going. I can’t thank you enough for what you are doing!!! You are truly an inspiration to us all to keep on going each and every day. Thank you for all that you do to help end MS! You are truly an amazing and caring person!!! I wish you all the very best with your ride!!!! Good luck and take care. You are an angel.
