That's Life - February 20, 2019

After weeks of extreme cold we finally made it north of minus 10 Celsius. Along with warmer temperatures comes the possibility of more snow. I’ll take it. Not that I have much choice.

You will notice our Public Works crews are busy cleaning Saturday’s snow from our streets. Please take note of the “No Parking” signs that have been placed around town indicating when your street is to be cleared.

Please be patient as it takes time to clear the 24.9 km of streets within the Town of Three Hills, excluding lanes. This is not a case of moving a handful of loads of snow. Due to Saturday’s winds, there are areas in town that are very difficult to navigate.

For interest sake, last year Public Works hauled 1425 loads of snow from town streets. That takes time.

Most people have done an excellent job of clearing their sidewalks but there are those who haven’t lifted a finger. If you are able to clear your own snow, I urge you to do so. If you are unable, please call a friend or relative and try your best to get the job done as soon as you can.

For those young folks out there who would like to make some extra money, I ask you to call Seniors Outreach at 403-443-2555 and ask to have your services listed for snow removal, should the need arise. Also seniors in need of snow removal should call Seniors Outreach to see if there is someone available to help you out.

To those of you out there walking, like me, be sure to look out for icy conditions on sidewalks and on the streets. Remember, it’s not the fall that hurts you, it’s all about the landing.

That’s Life.
