went to the jacky concert stayed a lil longer after the concert

my fault, i didnt know the parking lot i parked in closed @ 11:30 and i got back @ 11:35 and it was already closed! to top it off my phones battery had died, luckily my buddy was still @ his car so we called the Securiguard # to come and open the gate for me (i parked in the Amec building)

the security took 1hr to arrive, according to his map Lot31 (it says on the sign what lot/address the parking lot is) belongs to some other lot on Howe st.; anyway he doesn't have the right key to open this parking lot... his pass won't open it... so he calls it in and they say they'll send a guy in a car (the security that came was on a bicycle) so i shouldnt have to wait too long....

well it took another 1hr for the next guy to arrive and this is with my calling every 20mins going wtf? and getting the reply of (10mins, so sorry) so finally get my car from securiguard and it cost $50 -_- (so parking ended up costing me $71 tonight) and im on my way home

but the thing is its been snowing for a long time now and although its rain in downtown its a snow storm the moment you pass Commercial Drive and i don't have my snows on -_- so Im driving really slow especially since the hwy isn't plowed and some spots its quite thick
saw a bunch of cars spun out and stuck in the snow on my way home, i spun once luckily there were no cars anywhere nearby and luckily i was going slow enough that i didnt keep spinning

took a long ass time to get back -_-


they were just starting to plow West bound lanes when i was almost home

Fresh snow = chaos

First I witness a c230 coupe trying to go up a hill, almost slides into the fence of my house!

Then behind my property, there was a hit and run going downhill. The person hit the right side of the Van, runs up the side walk, smashes their front fence.

I immediately got into my car and tried to track the bastard down, but unfortunately that person took off too quickly.

EDIT:

Woke up at 7am and shoveled the whole block and 2 driveways.

Time to pass out again. Wake me up before the football game. Thanks.

You're not likely to find them retail... probably only from security/CCTV distributors - places like Tri-Ed or ADI (although I don't think either of those carry IQ). We normally sell them to clients for (if memory serves) $799.

There goes shopping at No Frills this morning. Fricken buy my lottery tickets from the Asian twins at the Superstore every Saturday for good luck. I ain't going down Decair Street in the snow, LOL. Them roads down to Lougheed Hwy from Austin Avenue is nuts.

What the hell, I've got great snow tires and I love snow. Gotta stop being such a pussy about driving in the snow. On my way to Ikea breakfast, LOL.

A friendly reminder for those with elderly at home:
Dont let the elders shovel snow. Cold weather = constricted blood vessels. Heavy manual work = increased heart rate. Old age = less flexible blood vessels. Combination is heart attack.

And wax up your shovel before you do attack the snow.

Driving home last night at 3am was... interesting lol

Went from a friends place in east maple ridge, back home to pitt, and Lougheed was a nightmare. Had snow tires, so it wasnt so bad. Really should have just picked up a coffee, and hit the hills in Coquitlam for some fun.

Oh yeah, its still snowin pretty good out here in Pitt awwwwwwyeahhhh!

Get snow tires you dumbass! - YouTube

That car is on summers, not even all seasons. These cars are terrible in the snow without proper snow tires, nevermind summer tires.

That said, I still have my summers on, and there's no snow in Kits so I'm going to the gym.
