10 miles

We headed out today to see a rare bird at Fort Erie/Buffalo which is a 3 1/2 hour drive away.
It was clear with a blue sky.
About an hour done the road we started seeing snow on the ground followed by snow squalls.
In a 16 kilometer - 10 mile - stretch we went from clear to blizzard conditions.
The two lanes were down to one, heavily rutted, limited visibility and 45-50 km speeds (25-30 mph)
We turned around and came home to clear roads and sunny skies.
What a difference a few kilometres can make.
The storm was mainly lake effect snow.
