After a major snowfall like the one we had on New Year’s Eve, streets are immediately plowed here in Winnipeg. The priority, of course, is the main streets.
I was taking a walk after lunch when I saw this snowplow clearing our street.
All that snow is pushed aside to the curb. So you’ll see a lot of high piles of snow like this one.
There were times when I had to walk on the street because some of the sidewalks have not been cleared yet. I came upon these two homeowners who were snowblowing their driveways.
I found this picture of a gas-powered snowblower on the internet. It must be a lot easier to work this baby than shoveling all that heavy snow.
On parking lots, the piles of snow are a lot higher. Can you see the shopping cart beside that mountain of snow?
This is a picture I had taken two years ago when we were also in deep snow. That is the machine they use to clear the snow and dump it in a pile. You can see it here in action.
