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.
