A Commute in “Sillicon Valley North”

28-Nov-05 06:26 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments
As mentioned in article(s) previous – I work in Perth, ON commuting ~3hrs. daily to and from my home in Ottawa.  This morning’s weather in Ottawa offered some pause – as likely do many days ahead during the winter while I continue working on my current contract there:
At the time this photo was taken, there was a nice thin (albeit melting as the morning wore on) film of ice on this road.  This segment of the commute (along Hwy. #417 between Palladium Dr. and Carp Rd. in Kanata, ON) can get particularly treacherous, because routinely traffic piles up just east of here at the intersection of Hwys. #417 & #416.  The result is traffic considerably thicker in both directions than what we’re seeing here; made all the worse by bad weather. 😉
Oddly enoguh, "the 417" as it’s called in these parts is generally in worse shape (from what I’ve seen so far) than Hwy. #7 which exits off this highway to take me to Perth when weather conditions worsen.  Dunno why – they 7’s just waaay less slippery….and it oughtta be the other way around, IMHO.
