Whats Playing Wednesday: First Aid Kit

So much love for this song; it is basically my anthem right now.

Midday Bistro #Sackville Is Closed. 



 Well, this sucks. Not good to see a place which offers something different close up. Midday seemed to have quite a few fans around here but they were set up very close to Sobeys First Lake, which decided to take them on directly with specials tageted at the Bistro.

Overnight Parking Ban will continue to be enforced Thursday, March 5

Wednesday, March 4, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Please be advised that the municipal overnight winter parking ban will continue to be enforced from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Thursday, March 5, to facilitate ongoing ice and snow removal around the Halifax region.

It began snowing early this morning and has already changed to rain and freezing rain in some areas of the Halifax region. Showers are expected throughout the day with temperatures rising above zero and dipping back below the freezing mark tonight.

Crews will be out again with graders and loaders to tackle the thick ice pack on a number of side streets where it has become increasingly difficult to navigate because of deep ruts and potholes in the ice. Crews are also continuing to clear catch basins to help with flooding, push back and cut down snowbanks, and cut out intersections, cul-de-sacs and bus stops from the snow earlier this week.

Vehicles must be off municipal streets during the hours noted above. Residents should also be aware that under section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, tickets can be issued and vehicles can be towed any time, day or night, if they are parked in a manner that interferes with snow clearing.

As well, in order to further optimize mobility, visibility and ultimately safety, the municipality is using temporary No Parking signage on select streets in the Halifax region where it is particularly difficult for local traffic, buses and emergency service providers to navigate around parked vehicles. This step is often taken during the winter months and is permitted under Section 151 of the Motor Vehicle Act. Motorists are advised to obey these restrictions or risk being ticketed or towed.

The overnight winter parking ban is in effect from now until March 31. It will be enforced only during declared snow and ice events and snow removal operations.

The easiest way to be prepared when snow is coming is to sign up for CityWatch notifications of parking bans. Fill out a registration form, call 311 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Subscribers will receive timely alerts by phone, email, and/or text message when the ban is in effect and again when it is lifted. Residents who received these notifications last winter will continue to receive the service this year. Standard text messaging rates apply.

For more information on snow clearing operations, visit www.halifax.ca/snow.

Overnight Parking Ban will continue to be enforced Wednesday, March 4

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Please be advised that the municipal overnight winter parking ban will continue to be enforced from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Wednesday, March 4, to facilitate ongoing ice and snow removal around the Halifax region.

Crews will be out again tonight with graders and loaders to tackle the thick ice pack on a number of side streets where it has become increasingly difficult to navigate because of deep ruts and potholes in the ice. Crews are also continuing to salt and scrape on other side streets and the sidewalks to gradually remove the ice buildup.

In addition to this ice removal work, crews are doing overnight snow removal work to push back and cut down snowbanks, and cut out intersections, cul-de-sacs and bus stops.

Vehicles must be off municipal streets during the hours noted above. Residents should also be aware that under section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, tickets can be issued and vehicles can be towed any time, day or night, if they are parked in a manner that interferes with snow clearing.
