Saskatoon Snowstorm Causes Gridlock


The snow continues to fall in Saskatoon as roads and parking lots are already clogged with vehicles. Drivers are going not much faster than 20 or 30 km/hr on most roads in the city. 33rd Street West and Confederation Drive have been plowed already making things a bit more bearable for west side residents. No word as to how things are on the east side but everyone has no choice but to help each other out if they want to get around town today. Here are a couple of photos taken before the pizza delivery rush begins. TJ's Pizza is open for delivery today but don't expect to get your pizza very quickly, especially during rush hour or crawling hour as it will be called today.

About Me

Storm & Wildlife Photographer.
NON-PROFIT Volunteer Storm Caster

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
