seen loves snow clearing

Big machinery clearing big piles of snow. What's not to like? Here are city crews at work on Bond Street Thursday night in St. John's.



A cold, dry day

We're not used to "Canadian"cold in St. John's, but it's what the weather spirits have been delivering to us the last few days. At least it looks pretty.


Snow clearing

St. John's crews were out in force last night, clearing up the remnants of last week's storm from downtown streets.


Sidewalk clearing

Sidewalk clearing is a popular conversation in St. John's after any storm. Pedestrians find walking a struggle, since a lot of sidewalks aren't clear. City politicians say they're making sidewalk clearing a priority.

seen walks a lot, and on this morning commute's noticed that while one side of most streets were completely blocked,  you could easily cross over to the other nicely-cleaned side.
