Oh, it looks cold but not too cold, though I know looks can be deceiving. I feel sorry for the bicycle and hope its rider comes to save it before the next onslaught! Think of all that rust! You shot this at a good angle and there's a real sense of sunshine happening - which makes it a more hopeful image than it could have been. Well done, Kathy!!
The roads and sidewalks only get ploughed when there is a snowfall. It's all done by the city although many shopkeepers will clear the space in front of their shops more thoroughly. In this area the city does a good job and they have removed the snow and taken it away in dump trucks to be dumped in various designated areas.
