District of Hope preparing for upcoming winter storm

District says they are continuing to remove snow and snow windrows in wake of upcoming storm

The District of Hope is continuing to remove snow as they prepare for the upcoming winter storm.

In a post on Facebook, the District said that remaining snow windrows will be removed tonight (Dec. 22) in order to prepare for the storm on Friday (Dec. 23) and Saturday (Dec. 24). They encourage residents to avoid travel tomorrow due to poor driving conditions.

Windrows are the banks of snow that they push to the centre of the road when clearing them.

The provincial government is also asking everyone to avoid travel Friday and until the conditions improve. Weather will be severe, potentially including snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and heavy rain.

Watch the Standard website and social media channels for updates on the upcoming storm, including traffic and weather issues.
