Edmontonians woke up to a whiter world Sunday morning, with several centimetres of snow falling overnight.
Crews worked through the night Saturday and into Sunday to clean up after the evening’s snowfall.
The city says it has more than 90 pieces of equipment out working Sunday to finish the cleanup, which will be focused on main roads, bridges and hilly areas.
Drivers are reminded to leave space between vehicles and brake carefully.
Environment Canada has lifted the snowfall warning for the city, saying there may yet be some periods of light snow Sunday afternoon tapering off into the evening.
The worsening weather is also sending many rushing to tire shops around the city to make the switch over to winter tires, causing growing wait times.
Michael Sands, owner of the downtown Fountain Tire, said the unseasonably nice weather through October is likely part of the reason for the last minute rush.
“I think people were lulled into a false sense of security, but now it's time to pay the piper and now they're lining up. It's interesting because the demand is very high.”
But it’s not all bad news. As CBC’s Travis McEwan found out, the folks over at a city cross country ski shop are eagerly anticipating the next dump of snow.
