Picture of the Week – Slush

Flooded Intersection, The Glebe, Ottawa, March 2012

The weather has been very strange for the past few days. We had snow, blizzard, very strong winds, warmer temperatures, hail, drifting snow and then cold temperatures. This resulted in dirty snow banks and some slush.

Trust me, there is nothing more beautiful than a fresh coat of snow but there is nothing worse than slush. The slurry mixture of ice, water and dirt blocks drains and piles up on sidewalks. It makes walking around an adventure.

I don’t mind walking in the snow, although much like walking on the sand, it can be tiring. But I do hate getting my feet wet or worse, getting splashed by a car!
