Snow—Yet Again

Date: January 9, 2007 For Immediate Release
VICTORIA, BC — The City of Victoria is currently moving ahead with preparations for a cold weather front expected to hit this evening and tomorrow. Road crews are standing by to clean up tree damage and clear ice if it accumulates on roadways. Two salting units are already on standby, with two additional units to be ready before the end of the day.

I’m thinking the City of Victoria aught to get into the weather business. Every time I receive a press release from them for weather conditions, they are correct. Except for the road crews standing by. I looked out my window when I received this. All I saw were two fire trucks at the arena. Not a crew in sight. Not a sanding truck anywhere.

No mention of snow either, just ice. Very pretty. Considering it never snows in Victoria.
