I went on a quick business trip to Canada this past week. This photo was taken from the hotel room at The Delta in Fredericton, NB. I brought my son to Fredericton this past summer and it is a delightful place when it is warm outside. This trip - well, a bit cold to my liking:
Do you see that? -20C (that would be -4F) during the DAY. Brrr. Love that little temperature thing on my mirror. I had to warm my truck up for a good 10 minutes before driving.
Nice in snug in the beautiful hotel room. Didn't even have to go outside - ate at their restaurant.
A shot from my travels along the shore. So very cold that the ocean vapors are very thick! Brrrr. Did I already say that?

And along the way - when I just need a stop-over hotel - I stay at my favorite road trip stop - Motel 6 - their bedspreads say Motel 6. Don't you love it? Very basic, but clean hotel rooms and the rooms aren't frigid when you check in - got to love that when it is so cold outside. Just remember to bring your hair dryer inside because they don't have them in the rooms. I always get a kick out of that, but since I know about it - I pack accordingly. Helps to be flexible when you travel.
And now I am back. Phew. Long drive in not always the best of winter weather.
