    Well, the snow just kept coming, like the system stalled over our corner of the world.

    I posted earlier about Kindersley RCMP warning about winter driving with lyrics - so other detachments have responded.
    I think this first one is the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme?

    Now, this is a story all about how
    My car got ed-turned upside down
    And I'd like to take a minute
    Just sit right there
    I'll tell you how my car spun out of control in mid-air.
    On the streets of Edmonton I wasn’t phased
    Summer driving was easy most of the days
    But then outta nowhere things got cool
    All the water froze up in my grampa’s pool.
    Then the storm filled the skies, yeah it was no good
    Started making ice patches in my neighborhood
    I locked up the brakes and my mom got scared
    My car hit the ditch, ‘cause I wasn’t prepared.
    I whistled a tow truck and when he came by
    He suggested “winter tires, and take more time.”
    If anything I could say I drive more safe now
    I realized that my bumper ain’t no snow plow.
    He dropped me back home, about 7 or 8
    And I yelled to the trucker 'Yo home smell ya later'
    I looked at my wheels
    Not to be taken lightly
    Driving’s a privilege and I gotta do it politely.

    - We’d like to thank the Kindersley RCMP for the inspiration.

    I hate winter and I cannot lie
    You other drivers can’t deny
    When a storm blows in with an icy, snowy glaze
    And a snow pile in your way
    Tires get spun
    Wanna pull up fast ‘cause you notice that green light’s phasing
    Deep in the snow you’re sliding
    Other drivers can’t stop staring
    Oh Calgary, we want to slow down wit’cha
    So read this pict’cha


    (We're happy to join in on the lyrical antics of the Kindersley RCMP & Edmonton Police Service to promote safe winter driving)

    Millet Fire Department (AB)

    I like big trucks and I can not lie
    You highway drivers can’t deny
    That when you only leave an itty bitty space
    Things could blow up in your face
    You could get stung, with a ticket,
    Or if what’s ahead slows you could hit it
    if ice on the road is glaring
    you’ll probably end up swearing
    oh, baby, gotta keep your distance,
    in winter road conditions
    MFD is trying to warn you,
    Cause If you can’t stop you’ll be so sorry
    Oooh, another dump of snow hit
    But you Gotta get in your ‘Benz?
    Well excuse me, don’t cruise me,
    ‘cause tailgaiting don’t amuse me
    I see you advancing,
    In my mirrors I keep glancing,
    There’s someplace you gotta get
    Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
    You’d really make a scene, If you had to stop suddenly
    Even on a good day, do the math
    Stay at least three seconds back
    So, ladies (yeah), Fellas, (yeah)
    Do your tires have what it takes?
    When you brake it, brake it,
    Brake it safely but……
    You gotta keep back.
    You gotta keep back.

    Nor'easter was blowin' in hard onshore.
    Salt spray across the A1A fogging up the sunglasses.
    Rain showers would come in fast then leave just as fast.
    Brekkie on the beach.
