Yesterday, we ventured out, to have a look at the snow situation and to get some groceries. The Maritimes and the New England states really got walloped. In a ‘normal’ winter, 2,000 truckloads of snow are removed from the city. In the last, three weeks, they’ve removed 20,000+ and they’re in no way finished. They’re not allowed to dump it in the ocean for environmental reasons. This snow dump [in the picture] is right at the edge, though, so it will eventually end up in the ocean anyway.
We didn’t even have to shovel out our car. Somehow the wind direction had made our spot totally clear — we backed right out!
