Nanaimo Really Doesn't 'DO' Snow

City Crews and City Residents Can't Handle Snow...

Snow is something we in Nanaimo brag about not getting, commonly saying of the rain 'well at least you don't have to shovel it'. Turns out not shoveling it, also applies to snow in Nanaimo.

Have any doubts? Just try using the sidewalks to get around on, if you are fortunate enough to live on a street that actually has sidewalks (a modern city convenience yet to find my 80 year old street).

As for plowing the roads, well, on Sunday it seems for the first half of the day everyone was recouping from Canada hockey team jubilation and even the main roads didn't see a blade until at least noon, if then. As for side streets, some have been so poorly done, they might have been better left untouched. At least if left untouched you would have the whole road to navigate on, rather than a single lane down the middle.

No sir, we can usually laugh at the rest of Canada as they deal with winter, but the rest of Canada can have a good laugh on us, if they see how we DON'T deal with the white stuff.
