Give a wave to the man or woman up in the truck and grader or snowblower, as they've thrown the clock out the window to ensure that you could make it where you need to go.

"Right now, City crews are putting in some long hours. We're still blowing off the priority 1's, but they're all bladed. We've moved into priority 2 collector streets, and we've got the graders on there, we'll be beginning to blow them off," shared Roads and Drainage Manager Norm Mack.

"We're going to have to do priority 3, and we'll be blading them, starting as well today. The snow is heavy, it was a wet snowfall, and that makes the equipment work that much harder."

Mack also commended the public on their cooperation with the clearing crews.

"They've been very good, for the most part. If they see the equipment coming down their street, they're moving their cars. It's hard for us to know where we're going to be, exactly, on some days just because of the simple fact that we don't know how long a street is going to take, just by the amount of snowfall, breakdowns and so forth."

"We have two crews going with two different blowers, so if you see them working on a street, maybe just turn down a different one and avoid them altogether," he reminded drivers.
