According to the Daily Hive, the City of Vancouver prepares for weekend snow with 100 snow and ice vehicles and 3,000 tonnes of salt, the City of Vancouver says it is prepared for the snow and colder temperatures expected this weekend.
The city says crews are monitoring weather reports and a “response plan is underway” with key routes including major roads, bus routes, bridges and the 15 most-used pathways and bike routes currently being treated for ice and snow.
Potatoes Help! The night before freezing temperatures, rub half a potato over your car’s windshield. The sugar from the potato creates a barrier over the window and prevents ice from forming, so you’ll come out in the morning and won’t have to scrape! Simply rinse and wipe with your wipers when you get on the road.
Many have been asking how to best spread/apply icemelters?
Icemelters are best spread by using some mechanical means such as a spreader. Using a spreader guarantees even consistent distribution. While deicers can be spread manually using a scoop or by hand, it is not recommended. Spreaders are available in all sizes, from small hand held varieties to large dump truck attachments. Many users of ice melters like to have their product colored to make it easier for the person doing the spreading and to help over use of the product. Colored deicers can easily be seen by people, assuring them that it is safe to walk on the ice.
For more information on high-quality icemelters and deicers that are organic, “green” and safe to use, check out XYNYTH.com.

We at XYNYTH want to take this opportunity to say GOOD RIDDENS to 2020 and welcome to a brand new year. Like all of you, we are hoping that this new year will bring with it many great things that hopefully will move us closer to a “new normal”. So we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR. May this new year be one full of new adventures, and great success for each of you. All the Best !!!!
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, if you like snow, then you should head out to western Quebec and Ontario, where snowier-than-normal conditions are forecast. In addition, above-normal snow is expected over the interior of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
They have marked the second week of January over Ontario and Quebec for a possible heavy snowfall with a wintry mix for the Maritimes, and another for the second week of February for possible blizzard conditions in the Maritimes. In the final week of March, much of the eastern half of the country looks stormy, with a significant late-season snowfall blowing into Ontario and Quebec on through the Maritimes.
As per the Old Farmer’s Almanac, uncommonly chilly temperatures are predicted mostly for the western states and northeastern New England. Specifically, winter will be colder than normal in Maine; the Intermountain, Desert Southwest, and Pacific Southwest regions.
Snowfall will be greater than normal in the Northeast, Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, the High Plains, and northern Alaska.
2020 has been a year like no other in the lives of everyone living today. It is a year, I would venture to say, that most people want to see an end. A year to put behind us. While many people and businesses have suffered, the events of this past year have reminded us all of what is truly important in our lives – People. Keeping in touch and being kind. Reaching out, helping out, and staying in touch.
So as this year draws to a close, let me say how proud I am to be working with each of you and all the staff at XYNYTH. I think this is not said enough. All of us working together, as a well-oiled machine, as a team, for a common cause, is a continual reminder of the importance of people. I respect and appreciate everyone in the XYNYTH Family and admire our diversity.
While this will likely be one of the most chaotic, crazy holiday seasons, with many of us not able to get together with extended loved ones; let us remember to be calm and reflect, yet again, on the importance of life. Hopefully, this pandemic will come to an end soon.
Let me take this opportunity to wish you and your family all the very best this holiday season. May you get some time to relax, enjoy some great food, great wine, and each other, if even only on a “zoom” call? The New Year is sure to bring some great hope for everyone!!Keep calm, be kind, and stay safe! All the Best !!!
