It was bound to happen and happen it did.  SNOW.  Not a lot but enough to make us really glad to get home just before it started.  The trip hope is awful as it is but it would have been long, and arduous with snow.

We got home exhausted, warmed up the rig and pulled the awning almost all the way in.  Unfortunately we did not realize how much it was snowing and by the time we did, the snow accumulation on the awning was enough to tear it.  We had quite a time straightening it out enough to bring it all the way in.  Now it's in but it's rolled pretty sloppily and of course, it's frozen.  We will have to wait for a "warmer" day and hope that it thaws enough to deploy and roll back up.  Weatherman says it should be 10*C (50*F) on Monday.  If not we will be out there with the blow dryer, trying to thaw it.

By the time we had to drive into Vancouver this morning, most of the snow was gone and in Vancouver - they didn't have any!

NOOOOOOOO! I am so sorry you have to put up with that horrible stuff. But 50 sounds pretty good and hopefully you'll be able to get that awning out and back in again.

I am so relating! We are predicted to get our first snow today and I think this time it will happen.

Oops! Just looked out the patio door at our balcony and, yes, it is happening. Looks like someone powder sugared our deck right now.
