When in Rome...or Alberta!

After yesterday's snow, we thought we'd better go "tool up" to better handle this winter business so we popped into Wal-Mart to buy some essentials for the car. Jan is modelling our mini snow shovel! We also bought a blanket and our own snow brush as the one we used this morning (see below) goes with the hire car we have. We need a few other bits and bobs to complete our car winter survival kit.
Also critical to survival in Canada in Winter (well, actually, year aroud) are regular visits to Tim Horton's (it really is totally ingrained in Canadian culture) where you can gain much needed sustenance in the form of coffee, donuts, muffins, pastries and so on. Here, two drifters, on the point of exhaustion, exhibit what is known as the "THS" or the "Tim Horton's Smile!" after tasting some much needed coffee and donuts!
