Are We Preparing For Heavy Snowfall?

The weather has been warm for the past 3-4 days and the sky overcast and gloomy. It worries me - is the weather due to brew up some heavy snow across our mountain passes? We are into mid January and this is certainly snow time.

It is sad that this year we will not be seeing children in the open battling with snowballs. During this pandemic time and the ongoing lockdown, we have to be confined within our homes. That is not a problem.

The problem will be if our supply delivery chain is disrupted during this period of lockdown. I hope the Department of Roads has enough stock of salt to sprinkle over the road surface at the high passes so that traffic flow is not disrupted. It would also be a good idea to station some earth moving equipment at the high passes on both sides - to shovel snow - if the down pour becomes too heavy.
