Where I stayed
After successfully reaching Montreal in about 3 hours, I decided to pass right by because rush hour traffic was ridiculous and I knew that if I stopped in, even for a coffee refill, that my travels would be delayed by hours. Freezing rain was forecasted to start falling in Montreal and Ottawa in a few hours so I thought I'd try to boot it right on through before that happened and maybe spend the night in our nation's capitol.
About another 3 hours later, just as I was arriving in Ottawa, the snow began to fall. No traffic issues so I decided to pull in for lunch. I had a delicious panini sandwich and a couple of coffee refills and was on my way again
I'm sleeping in tomorrow. Heading for Sudbury then on to Sault Ste. Marie. The weather is supposed to be cold but clear so I'm hoping that if I leave around 11am tomorrow, the plows will be done clearing the highways and that I'll finish my day's worth of driving around sunset. Here's hoping.
I've made pretty great progress so far and am about 400km further than I'd planned to be after 2 days so from here on out, if there's any weather on the horizon that I might not want to deal with, I'm gonna stay and extra night.
