In pictures: The aftermath of rare October winter storm in Brandon

Posted by Adam in Local Weather, 10/12, 1:45 PM

As a weakening system that brought Southern Manitoba and Brandon a rare October winter storm from Friday into Saturday slowly releases its grip on the area, the city was in the midst of a big cleanup on Saturday. Whether you haven't had a chance to make it out or you aren't in Brandon and would like a better idea of what folks in the city are dealing with after a presumed 30+cm of snow (and counting) blanketed roads, parks et all below is a gallery of pics taken primarily on Friday and Saturday.

Rideau Park after Wednesday's overnight snowfall, before Friday's main event

Trucks line on the City's stretch of Trans Canada highway ahead of the Eastbound closure Friday afternoon

The first major snowfall starts on Friday afternoon just after 1pm

A cyclist rides down Richmond Avenue after just two hours of snowfall on Friday

Snowpacked walking path through the city's cemetery early Saturday morning

Still Hom of the W Kin, through thick and thin :)

Canadian Tire parking lot is cleared early Saturday morning

Original Joe's... North Pole location?

Snow clings to Westoba Place

Booster Juice and one of tons of evergreens weighted down by all of the snow

Fusion Credit Union and FPC

An example of the kind of driving conditions motorists had to contend with on city side streets

The accumulation of snow took more effort than normal to move in lieu of weight

Brandon University and Clark Hall

Snow covered cars by Brandon University

A particularly photogenic tree by BU

One of many city signs at least partially concealed by the sticking snow

Election signs certainly weren't immune themselves

A downtown sidewalk is cleared

A driver prepares his car for the road

An example of what he's about to have to contend with

... on closer inspection

9th street and Princess Avenue

A downed tree downtown

A city park at about as magical as you'll ever see it!
