Don't forget to allow the time difference if communicating with anyone here.

Does the time difference affect the temperature? It's a balmy -12įC here this morning in central Alberta.

We went through Jindabyne on a rally a few years ago. Headed on to Kankoban (sp?) just as night fell and a thunderstorm hit. There was about a bucket full in each drop. That road was as black as a dog's innards with several rock falls along the way. It was one of the best drives we have done.
My wife just reminded me of a group of 4WD hot shots who flew past us annoyed by these old cars on the road. We soon found them all stopped with not enough spare wheels between them after a couple of them hit one of those rock slides. We offered help but pointed out that our wheels wouldn't fit and left laughing. Yeh, that was a GREAT drive.
