It's -12C (10F); feels like -22C (-8F) and sunny.
The city expects to finish snow removal by Monday the 7th, provided we don't get another major snowfall. They are stopping work on snow removal on Monday, NYE for 36 hours. By then, most of the guys doing the snow removal will have worked on it for 70 hours, which is the max allowed by law seven days (for snow removal). Wow! These guys have been putting in 14 hour days. The city crews have been supplemented by private contractors. The city figures that this round of snow removal will cost $25,000,000. The annual snow removal budget for Montreal is $150,000,000.
