Winter Road Conditions- Dec 26, 27

Came back on Hwy 10 from Erickson. City roads suck but the hwy was great. Sure the usual blowing snow. No problem doing 100km/hr for me. Others seemed to be nervous as some were doing 80. Safe travels to those on the highway.

Just tried to get to work...

And got stuck 50 feet down the street from my driveway. Would still be there if my awesome neighbor hadn't come out to help dig/push. Snow is up past the axles on my car. Stay off the roads if possible. I'm waiting for a coworker with a 4x4 to come get me but anything less isn't going to get through.

Roads

Within the city going to guess that we've had pretty close to a foot of snow so far, more to the eye in areas that are vulnerable to drifting. Please don't drive unless you absolutely have to.... There are tracks from someone with a vehicle that managed to at least get down our street but personally we don't own a vehicle that could get out of our driveway as things stand right now.

Morning

Was opening up Browns Restaurant but got the call that we will be closed today... Also no cabs or buses are running is all i heard this morning... Queens near Colonial Inn is a mess! I was unable to exit from the back door of our apartment building due to the snow drifted it shut. A lot of cars can't get in or get out. Just waiting on snow removal. Be safe everyone! Can't imagine what it's like outside of the city!

Roads

18th St in the area of the mall is all plowed. Richmond in the same area is still a work in progress.  
Concern to keep in mind that I'm sure they have a plan to deal with is the amount of snow built up on meridians. Now easily higher than what a driver can see over when judging turns, etc. Will add a pic of 18th and of Vic.  
 
Mall parking lot being plowed but it''''d be a stretch to think they'll quite have it done by 9AM opening time.

My brother was to fly back to Calgary today! Looks like the flight is cancelled now, not that he could drive to the airport on these roads anyway!

10

We travelled #10 to #16 from Brandon, it was not bad, some drifting and snow covered sections, lots of traffic, you'd be fine, not sure how it is closer to Onanole.

Richmond and 18th are good. Well we only traveled from Park to Canadian Tire on 18th, and from 18th to 6th on Park. That had all been cleared.  
 
Canadian Tire gas bar is closed.

City snow clearing

From the City of BRANDON  
Efforts today and tomorrow (Tuesday) are focusing on "punching through" all Priority Routes to create safe & passable situations wherever possible. The Streets & Roads Dept is attempting to bring in contracted help to assist with clearing these Priority Routes, but likely not until tomorrow. No overnight parking bans have been scheduled at this current time.  
A very good resource for your outlet and the general public to find updates on where plows are working is our Online Snow-Clearing Map, found at http://gis.brandon.ca/snowclearing/.  
PLEASE NOTE: it could be later in the week before crews begin clearing residential zones. We would ask for your assistance in getting that message out to the public.  
Brandon Transit is still running on its hourly service today (8 a.m. to 8 p.m.), but buses are certainly experiencing some delays. Handi-Transit services today have been reduced to medically necessary trips ONLY. A full Brandon Transit schedule for the week can be found at: http://brandontransit.ca/route-detours  
Finally, a note from the City of Brandon Sanitation Section that as regular refuse pick-up is scheduled to resume tomorrow, back lanes which are part of a regular Tuesday collection will be cleared overnight tonight.
