Storm leaves city streets and sidewalks icy

Making your way down city sidewalks has been challenging, to say least, since Tuesday’s ice storm. City staff has been busy trying to stay on top of them…but the weather has been unco-operative.

In fact, the blast from old-man winter that began with freezing rain and changed to a couple of centimetres of ice pellets before changing back to freezing rain Tuesday night left workers too narrow a window to clear roads AND sidewalks. And now the only recourse is a melt, since the city says its side-walk snow removal equipment is no good on this type of ice.
