Snow Clearance

Snow has come to the city and the clearing crews have been around. I think they missed working with our low snow winter as they passed several times, scraping down to pavement.

It is a complicated process with graders pushing the snow to the centre of the road, the snowblower blowing it all into a convoy of trucks and little caterpillars clearing the sidewalks. More snow on its way, so the process will start all over again.


  1. Wow yeah that looks like quite the complicated operation.

  2. Our process is similar. Our plow guys have had so little work, they've been cleaning up our snow piles and pushing them back. (Making me nervous because I think they're going to scrape away my front flower bed!)

  3. Beige and red color is a spice to the wintry landscape. I haven’t seen snow clearing crews and cars as it snows rarely here and even when it snows, it melts away next day.
