Scrape the roads and sand them?

No! Ice ruts! Lots and lots of ice ruts! Deep enough to make you go sideways at 30 kph should you slip in or out of one!

Good job, roads crews! 98/101 Ave is just a back road anyways, right? Bravo! Bravo!

**** this city.

I watched by buddies house last year when we got a good dump of snow. He had a snow blower so I pulled it out for the driveway, then I figured I'd go in front of his house and make a nice spot to park a car. Before I knew it I was at Esso getting more gas as I was just having fun clearing snow.

City really needs to look at the substance that is being used on the henday. The asphalt parts of the henday have next to nothing for ice as the special combo of liquid, salt and sand is meant to get rid of ice. Not like the Cities combo of table salt and 20mm gravel that they use.

I can never understand this line of thinking. Shoveling snow properly, and carefully, and with the right type of shovel for the individual is reasonable exercise and I actually enjoy it. Like your friend I enjoy snow shoveling so much I do the neighbors walks and driveways as well. Without a snowblower, by hand, and which actually helps to maintain my muscles and instead of going to the gym serves as a workout. A workout without any hassle of packing a gym bag, driving to gym, and driving back home. All I do is go out the door and pick up a shovel.

In this day and age of convenience, machinery, consumerism we seem to buy every last thing that takes away any exercise we would get in our natural daily tasks. We then proceed to buy several other machines and devices or memberships to have a workout. All the while finding more and more ways to avoid any physical activity in our daily lives.

Unless a person has a heart problem or other health problem I can't see any reason for a snowblower. I'm astounded that younger people in their 20's or 30's would buy one.

Yep. Respect. Its embracing what this place is and the wonder of it when it is. Snow is fascinating in all its forms. Something that most people in the world never get to see but wonder and dream about.

For me theres nothing like helping neighbors by shovelling the backalley, pushing their car out when its stuck, being kind to other drivers on the road when its like this and the commaradery that this all creates.

We don't get earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes here. Much of what the Earth throws at different regions is cataclysmic, fierce, scary, violent etc. But snow falling? This is peaceful, wondrous, a time to just stare out at it in wonder and awe like the first time you ever saw it. One of the most meditative events that nature provides anywhere in the world.

So few people appreciate it. Kudos for grasping it. Keep living in that moment.

ps I'm over 50 and still blasting music in the car as a background. Mind you I have Pete Townshend hearing by now..

ps2

This is my snow falling on pines song...



The best version of it as well. Great concert album and tour that was.

I consider myself in this category, for the most part. I love winter, I love snow. The only thing I hate, is the morning & afternoon commutes when it's like this. Regular winter driving? No problem. I am tired of 1+ hour commutes for what usually takes 25 minutes, though. Especially when it's been 3 days since the big fall.

Yeah, fortunately I have a job where people understand that being late is sometimes a byproduct of this land and that arriving in one piece is the way to go.

I've been impressed as well with the drivers out there on the freeways and with most people quickly getting it, hunkering down, and realizing its just going to take time. Road raging in this is like going to Hawaii and having a meltdown. Just hang loose, you'll get there. Also that theres less places to get to.

Thing about winter is its magic everywhere, magic just looking out the window, magic just out the front door and every picture you take looks like a Christmas postcard.

Except the fender benders, and buses sliding downhills..

But anyway, I was on a groove there.

Totally man, embrace it, too many people are wimps today. I was walking along 104ave to meet a girl for a drink, noticed a car up on the curb off 116st that looked abandoned, did a double take and noticed that there was a lady in there, cars kept driving by, so I stopped and helped. Wasn't much help at first with the pushing until another chap saw the scene came over to help get her out and off she went. It's our Canadian duty to help each other like this, it makes us all feel better and that we might actually be part of a community for once.

Mmhmm, I'm lucky enough to have a job where getting there, no matter what time, is most important. As such, I'm never stressed on the drives by any means, just a touch annoyed.

So really..the reality is...don't bother spending money on a snowblower. Just make sure you have an enthusiastic neighbour with one.

I'd hate for my wife to find me dead on the driveway. I'm insured but I think she'd hate for that to happen also. I've never used a snowblower but maybe it's time to consider it. I could buy it for my business, write it off and take it home occasionally when needed.

Ha ha I think I had the exact same experience as you on 98 ave this morning, just minding my own business doing maybe 30 kph max and all of a sudden I'm sideways, luckly I recovered quickly and there was no other cars around me.

Lol. Understand that line of thinking?. It really isn't that complex really. Just because one avoids the shovelling aspect of winter doesn't mean he doesn't mind the exercise. And it's really funny you mentioned excercise and my buddy for he's a professional bodybuilder/N fitness trainer. I don't think excersise is a problem with him. Frankly, I'm sure his chances of avoiding certain injuries while doing it the old fashioned way greatly decreases. Good for him to be honest. I highly doubt he bought that snowblower because its another way to avoid physical activity. That dude lives and breathes fitness.

Hell for me, I'd rather spar a few rounds in the ring than get my exercise shovelling snow. But hey to each their own. With crazy snowfalls such as the one Wednesday, I'll gladly use a snowblower on that 10/10 times and I'm not a lazy individual by any means. In fact, I used my shovelling experience on weds as my workout for the day as I was scheduled to have a training session that day anyways. Haven't had this kind of back soreness, post workout aches, in months. But like I said, I'd rather do deadlifts than shovel snow every single time.

The first snowfall always turns the city upside down. Everything's been terribly slow even 3 days after.

Weather says we're not supposed to get much more but everytime I look out the window at work today it looks like it's coming down hard. Can be deceiving that way I guess.

Just seems the city is taking an extra long time to recover.

Well, to be fair, that was a crap load of snow. And it was early too. Edmonton rarely gets hit hard this early. I expect this in January, not early November.


I must admit that my backyard looks so pristine and picture worthy. Lolol.

As an accountant this is the translation folks: keep it at home and use it completely for personal use and then take it to work when the young chap who normally shovels doesn't make it in.

I usually agree, but I've been doing more driving then I should in this, and it's rough, the roads were horrendous for 2 days and only now, sort of, seem to be coming around.

This isn't the usual "oh is snow, no surprise", this was a gongshow.

Nope but this is the usual outlier snowstorm so one should expect a different set of circumstances to follow. Especially given that it literally has only stopped snowing for a few hours since the big dump on Wednesday.

And it hasn't been plowed or sanded even once! lol. It's almost as if Edmonton is giving the middle finger to any commuters from the east! It was terrible last year too - half of the left lane of 101 Ave between 34 St and 17 St was covered in ice/snow for over a month, lol.

Yup - to add, shovelling introduces all sorts of issues for some of us who have had prior back issues. My driveway is only 18 ft, but it's in a cul-de-sac that gets hit with double the snowfall after winds. A snowblower is very tempting!

Have the roads crews retired and been replaced with narcoleptics? Semi-serious question...

Either way works for me. If I buy one, I'll use it in both places. Does one of the 'blowers fit into the back of a Toyota Rav 4 without removing the handles? Anyone know 'bout that?

Well, sorry to say, I'm over 50, I don't even get winded shovelling heavy snow for hours. Dad was still shovelling when he was 83. He should've stopped it and stopped smoking a pack a day as well...Come from good genes I guess but also that we keep active and always have. People should never look for less ways to be active. Shovelling show can be hard on some people. The solution being simple to pace yourself and allow breathing and stop and time to talk to neighbors and enjoy the scenery.

I don't think that theres anything specifically bad about snow shovelling for the average healthy person. Its a much better option than snowblowing and you're not burning gas, making a racket, etc.
