Snow has continued to fall in Meaford overnight Thursday, and into Friday morning. For the third consecutive day bus transportation to area schools has been cancelled though all Meaford schools have remained open.
While the poor weather and slippery roads have forced the cancellation of some events, the highly anticipated production of Snow White at Meaford Hall is going forward as scheduled.
“The show must go on,” Meaford Hall House Manager Susan Lake told The Independent by phone on Friday.
Lake advised that the afternoon performance for school children will take place Friday, however there are no school buses available to transport the children to Meaford Hall. Students at Meaford Community School will walk to the Hall, while the students at Ecole St. Vincent Euphrasia will be unable to attend the performance as it is not practical for the children to walk such a long distance, especially in the stormy weather Meaford is experiencing.
The evening performance by the organizers of 'Kids in the Meaford Hall', will also go forward as planned, and there are still some tickets available.
The relentless snow and wind over the past two days has kept municipal road crews very busy as they attempt to keep the snow cleared from town roads.
Fortunately this year Meaford is not scrambling to find enough snow plows to service the roads in the municipality. Last winter the Operations Department found themselves in a bind with one of their older trucks out of commission and had to rely on the generosity of neighbouring Town of Blue Mountains who loaned a spare plow to Meaford for the winter.
It is a different story this year though, as the municipality recently purchased a new tandem plow and had it ready and waiting for the snow to start falling.
Even though Meaford had a snow free November, the brand new 2010 International 7600, Tandem Plow / U Body Combination Sander, hasn't been sitting idle because as Superintendent of Transportation Services Phil Taylor explains, the truck is multi-purpose.
“The Transportation Services Department has been focusing on purchasing equipment that is multi-functional and multi-purposed. Long gone are the days of buying one piece of equipment with one purpose only,” Taylor told The Independent.
Among other tasks, the truck is also able to be used for material haulage for gravel, hot mix asphalt, cold-mix, and excavation materials from construction projects.
“The option of purchasing equipment that will do the job of two or even three separate pieces of equipment is a cost savings,” said Taylor, “One machine with multiple attachments stores in much less room than three full size pieces of equipment.”
Taylor also said that purchasing multi-purpose equipment has the additional benefit of significantly reducing maintenance costs associated with having several pieces of single-use equipment on hand.
The Weather Network is predicting that the snowfall will taper off Friday afternoon and will give way to a sunny Saturday.
