Snow Clearance

Snow Clearance

Snow Clearing is a long process in a big city. After a big storm the crews work around the clock. While most clearance is done with snow blowers and large trucks, even payloaders are used to fill the trucks with snow.

This sizable storm will take many days before all the streets and sidewalks are clear. Even snow crews have to take time off (the labour laws do not allow them to work more than a 70 hour week) so all snow clearance is taking a 36 hour break until the 2nd of January. With streets clogged with snow, public transportation is the best way to get around. No parking to worry about and more room for the big snow trucks to pass.
