I showed some pics of the aftermath of a typical Canadian snowstorm to some clients of mine down in Alabama and they were amazed so why not... maybe some of you southerners will get a kick out of 'a day in the life' up here in the great white north.
We got hit by a pretty decent storm the other day. Nothing huge but enough to be a pain. 1-2 feet on average. Some areas got almost 3.
What makes it a pain is the actual removal of the snow, as I'll outline below. It happens in several steps.
Step 1) Plow
the road so cars can pass. Problem is, pushing the snow off to the side buries the parked cars.
Here, most everyone already dug-out but the guy on the left is still sleeping, I guess.
Bad enough your car has a foot or two of snow on it... then add a machine-made snowbank to make your morning commute even more fun to get under way.
4-wheeled vehicles aren't the only victims
This clearly is a spot where a car had to dig-out
This clearly wasn't a car.... maybe @ChrisLR
was practicing not stalling his 600 in winter weather again
A little bit of snow doesn't prevent red-blooded Canadians from still enjoying lunch in the park, even if they have to remove a couple hundred pounds of snow from the picnic table first.
The next phase is the actual snow 'removal'... and here's the kicker: The snow removal phase means you HAVE to get your car out of the way or you get ticketed / towed. Some argue that it's easier to let the tow truck people haul your car out of the snowbank and just pay the fees
More to come, since a post is limited to 10 pics....
