Winter Trucking - Halifax style
Despite a heavy fall of snow last night, roads were mostly clear and wet in Halifax today. No ice roads here! Instead we have a snow followed by mild temperatures then rain - and lots of salt spread on the roads in the interim. It means slushy driving, and impossibly dirty trucks.
Mills' big Mack Titan and Paron trailer was on the road today hauling one of the imported Bell articulated off road dump trucks - this one a B30E - which had a quantity of wet snow in its dump body.
