A bit of snow...

So today Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Leduc and areas received a bit of snow.... just.... a bit....

This then helped in causing a 90+ vehicle crash on the Queen Elizabeth Highway (QE2 - aka: Highway 2) with hundreds (300+) of folks being bused to nearby hospitals. Somehow there was only four major injuries and a ton of minor injuries.

So far they have shut down the QE2 both ways (they were up to a 3+ hour wait time to get through the highway)... The Anthony Henday has also been shut down (the ring road that connects Edmonton to the surrounding areas)... 

Tow Truck wait time is at 8+ hours...

If you have to drive anywhere today, please drive insanely safe.... You never know where the freezing rain and drifting snow will take you.

I'll be updating my FB all evening... And if you're stuck and not able to get home, stop on by here! We're always happy to see friends safe and sound! Even if it's just until things clear up!

It is definitely a day to stay home, stay safe, stay clear-headed if out on the roads and stay patient while we all slip around in this soupy mess.
