During winter snow is cleared from the roads and put into massive piles to melt when warmer weather returns. This might seem simple enough, but it’s a big challenge dealing with the snow because of the sheer volume in colder climates like Canada. Researchers in British Columbia are proposing that the snow gets taken . . . → Read More: Things Are Good: Using Snow to Cool Buildings in Summer

I know what you’re thinking. “Fascinating subject Arb, do tell us more!”
Okay, perhaps not as gripping the other newsy bits we we have around here but none the less a subject that shouldn’t be casually swept aside. Living in Alberta means that for three to five months of the year, snow will be on . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Snow Seasonal Things Considered: Clean Sidewalks

Signs of more dangerous storms to come as the effects of climate change become more intense. What will the deniers say now? Global climate change – from human activities – is no longer a prediction… it’s a reality, and it’s getting worse. It is costing governments money as they have to clean up after multiple . . . → Read More: LeDaro: Dangerous and erratic weather in U.S

The traditional approach to deicing roads is to cover the roads (and thus the ground around the road) in salt – which is absolutely awful for the environment. Because so many people drive cars the demand for road salt is high and has come to negatively impact local economies and environments.

Interesting poll result. Federal Libs are at 32% in Manitoba. That’s still 10% back of the Tories, but I would imagine its enough to pick up a few seats hear and there, especially around Winnipeg.

Can only remember this much snow a couple of times in my life this far into April and probably only in the last 15 years or so.

Take care out there kids, especially if you’re in the NCR. Beaucoup de neige! These are also the ideal conditions for winter hoop snakes. These critters very much like it around the freezing mark and thrive especially well when the first snow of the season hits.
