So here we are, December the 1st and the deep freeze is upon us, or rather it should be fully entrenched come Sunday Morning.
It has been dancing above and below zero for the last little while, but that is supposed to come to an end come Saturday night.
For once it cools off Saturday night the temperature will not poke its head above zero for some a few months (Chinook notwithstanding).
This is neither here nor there and certainly nothing I haven’t seen before or can’t handle. Don’t get me wrong, I am not enthused that the deep freeze is nigh, but I can deal with it.
Since it is the 1st of December, I had hoped that what the man at my favourite campground in Banff was true in that at least a few campsites would be up on the reservation system today.
This is not the case, and while I will check daily, it looks ever increasingly like I will be driving to the mountains with blind faith and trusting in dumb luck that a spot will be available.
That is something I hate doing, as I will be driving after work and the last thing I want is to find out that nothing is available or that the park is closed for whatever reason.
I have been assured that it will be up and running, but you never really know and when it comes to my Christmas break, I don’t want to leave anything to chance.
Ah well, there is little else I can do, as I don’t want to go anywhere else, that is my mountain retreat. No matter what happens, I will be okay, and I will deal with it, I always do.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
