Street signs like these are common.
Snow itself is not as common.
Life is good. I can ride my bike.

Does this mean that your car will be burried by a snow plough if you park on that street? When I was in Edmonton some years ago, I was told that you could expect to not see your car again unitl the snow melted if you were foolish enough to park in a signed area.

What's it like to be snowed in? What do you do about work, food, other stuff???

Okay, Jesson, I'm here. If there is a huge snowstorm the city comes to a halt. People stay home, schools are closed--a snow day. The ploughs here do not trash your car, they go around it and you have to dig it out. Not fun. In the country, being snowed in means you can't get out for a few days. So you eat all the really great stuff in the freezer and take it easy. Sometimes the snow gets blown into huge drifts. Once, when I lived in Vermont, they lost the grader because it was left parked in a place where the wind blew giant snow drifts. But that was a unique snow moment.

Hi SR. This sounds like something to be enjoyed- so long as you're prepared I guess. Had to laugh that they'd lost the grader though... I would have though they'd be treated like an essential service and be cosseted and protected. :-)
