Jan 23 - Nobody Tells You How Your Life Will Change

One of the things that happens when you become a councillor is that you obsess a bit on the weather. You turn on your little pocket Blackberry and it lights up with email Snow Advisories telling you where the snow is headed, where the ploughs are in your ward and they keep coming every half hour until it stops!

The morning after a storm, the sun comes up and you can't help yourself. You leave your family behind digging out your own driveway and go touring around your ward to admire the snow ploughing and windrow clearing of your own Works Dept.

Long story short: It all looked pretty good to me. With no quick melt and refreeze as we had at Christmas, the guys were better able to plough roads right down close to the surface. If we missed a spot or you are having trouble, gives us a call at the Ward 33 office at 416-392-4038 and we will send somebody out.
