FIRST TASTE OF WINTER FOR NANAIMO



YES....THAT WHITE STUFF IS CALLED S N O W

For some peculiar reason the precipitation falling on Nanaimo late yesterday decided to change form into a rare looking white substance. I am told other parts of Canada are very familiar with this strange material and have adapted different means of dealing with it.

For Nanaimo residents adopting some of these habits could be helpful, however it is easy to forget since snow is such a rare occurence. A few reminders which could be helpful:

If your tires are bald, you might want to consider taking a cab or bus.
Footware with good traction are a great idea.
Clearing any snow or frost from your car windows makes for safer driving.
Remembering you can not control your car on snow or ice the same as you can on dry pavement.
Putting a bit of salt or sand on walkways can avoid nasty slips.
Allowing yourself extra time to get to your destination so you can slow down.

Be of good cheer as we all know this 'snow stuff' seldom last for more than a day or two.
