Mother Nature appears to have saved her worst for last. With winter winding down — we’re still digging out from the worst storm of the season — certainly in terms of snow accumulation. But the worst appears to be over. Here’s Mike Postovit.
Whether it’s a shovel.
Or even bigger. Whatever it takes to get the job done — people were doing it.
“I would think — next week being spring — hopefully it winds down.
“I would say I’m about ready to move on — yeah for sure.”
Kingston and area woke-up to about 10 centimetres of the white stuff. That’s in addition to 10 from the previous day — but the blowing snow made for much larger drifts.

“Two very strong low pressure systems merged — they phased — first of all working in tandem to bring a whole lot of snow to the region — they’ve merged and created this incredible Nor-Easter which is now slamming right into the Maritimes and Atlantic Canada for the next 24 hours or so.”
“We had tulips in the back yard and they were up high enough to be eaten rabbits so — I don’t know what’s going to become of them.”
Now while some people were moving snow — others were moving people. Kingston Transit drivers tried not to miss a beat.

“Our operators work really hard in conditions like this to make sure our service can stay on time and move people to where they need to be moved despite the weather that we’ve saw.
What’s priority stay on time?
“Our priority is always on safety — safety for our passengers, safety for other road users, that is always our priority — we won’t compromise that just to keep the schedule.”
Despite the 2 day blast of winter –there may be some good news beyond the growing snowbanks — spring officially starts on Monday. Mike Postovit, CKWS News, Kingston
