Saskatoon gets slammed by nasty snow storm

There are a few things that one can count on. Death, taxes, and the occasional nasty snow storm if you live in Saskatchewan.



Saskatoon is snowed under today. I moved 12 to 18 inches of it off of my driveway this morning and the weather forecast says we can expect it to continue for most of the day.


In a public service announcement, city councillor, Randy Donauer advises that city crews are busy sanding, salting and plowing roadways and sidewalks. Outside contractors are assisting with the work beginning with the highest priority streets (freeway, access to fire halls, hospitals and ambulance sites, major roads such as 8th Street and 22nd Street).


Donauer reminds us that the city is working as quickly as possible. Motorists are reminded to please slow down and allow extra time to get to your destination. Be mindful of the fact that snow plows and graders are large and slow moving. Please be careful when passing them.


My advice? If you can stay home, stay home. Visibility is down to mere metres in some areas. Circle Drive feels particularly dangerous today.


Best wishes,
Norm

He was the first Saskatoon real estate agent to promote a home online and has been an early adopter of new technologies ever since. “Everything about this business has changed over the past 20 years, and it will happen again in the next ten.

He’s a strong supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and enjoys raising funds by joining fun, fitness-related initiatives like the Grouse Grind for Shelter.

Collectively those initiatives raised over a million dollars for Canadian women's shelters.
