A big thank you to all the snow clearing people for the past few days.
The conditions for clearing were much more difficult, with all the traffic etc. than three years ago.
On February 6, 2015 it started to snow in the afternoon; everything shut down and everybody went home. The snow and wind continued until Saturday morning with the total of over 100 cm, or 3.5 feet. That time frame gave snow clearing crews the whole weekend to deal with that snowfall, they worked over the next few weeks to get it all done.
This time around we had about half of that but it was in the middle of the week, so this time it was much more difficult for those crews, so thank you again.
Our biggest snowfall was about 1999, we had the snow coming down at about 10cm, about four inches, an hour. The total at Lakelse Lake was around 130 cm , 4.5 feet over about 30 hours.
I find it almost amusing when I hear other places having heavy snowfall warnings when the forecast for those areas is 10-20 cm over 24 hours, for us that can be almost normal and no big deal.
