Day 48 No Report

We did go to the hill, it did warm up, it did snow hard up top and by the end of the day the lower part of the hill was rain with the deep snow turned to elephant snot.

Unfortunately at about 17:30 a semi smashed into the Lizard Creek Bridge closing Highway 3. We went back to the Rusty Edge to eat and found that the bridge was not going to open until gone midnight. We also discovered that cars trying to get back to Fernie via Morrisey had come off the road closing that option. Luckily a good friend who lives on the hill (thanks Ruth) took us in and gave us a bed until the Highway opened (alternating traffic only) at 2 in the morning.

I will do a report on both days tonight. Time to head for the hill.
