Digging Out

The plow’s arrival on Friday morning (Feb 17) was the most welcome sight of the day for many beleaguered Stanley Bridge residents. The fourth winter storm to hit the Island in eight days dumped up to 30 cm of snow on much of PEI a day earlier. George MacEwen, up long before light, had mountains of snow to clear throughout the Stanley Bridge area. His plow needed some tinkering on Sutherland Lane, but it wasn’t more than a few minutes before it was back on the job, throwing up large plumes of snow.
