Why "shovel" when you can use a "snowblower".

I'll check the weather records:

None in December 2016

January 7 -30.0C

January 8 -31.2C

February 10 -33.5C

That's it!!

Although there is still another month or so left of Winter, this will more than likely go down as the warmest on record. We had 10....yes 10 days in a row in January (16th to the 25th) where the high temperature was zero or higher!
