We recently had our residential street plowed in Westwood. I, a well-aged specimen, started clearing my blocked sidewalk.
A massive front-end loader appeared around the corner and, to my surprise, aimed his bucket at my blockage and cleared it in four seconds.
I mouthed my thanks, and he opened his window to say that we may be getting another 10 centimetres of snow soon. We both laughed, shook our heads, and he was gone.
I don’t expect sidewalk clearing, but this very decent kindness was greatly appreciated. I will not indicate on what street this occurred for fear this kind soul could receive a reprimand. I suspect the driver will know who he is.
We are fortunate to have dedicated snow removing crew, and it is just one more reason why I am delighted to live in Winnipeg despite its "coolish" winters.
