Through snow or snow storm

This is how the Canadian Post Office works, even as the big storm approaches. There is a sharp wind with a windchill, & an anticipated snowfall accumulation of 10-15 centimetres.

Meanwhile, our Elliot Lake workers,  are cutting down the banks of snow & encrusted ice along the streets. The goal is to widen the street access & increase visibility  at intersections.  Later work crews will be out ploughing, & where necessary, sanding. The sidewalks will also be cleared once the inclement weather passes.

Did I mention that Tuesday is garbage & recycling pick-up ? That happened too.

winter works in white –

see snow banks accumulate,

such a busy time.
