This one’s cheating a little bit: it’s not where I woke up, which was in a motel in Port Alberni, rather it’s an hour or so later, on the road back to Nanaimo from there. We’d been driving slooooowwly home in the snowstorm the night before… spun out of control twice, got a friendly rope-tow up one hill and barely made it up another… eventually we figured it was worth a night in a motel. Next morning presto, the roads were clear.
