Drivers are facing some pretty torturous commutes this week, as the Edmonton road conditions have led to a staggering number of collisions in just two days. Between Tuesday, February 11, and Wednesday, February 13, Edmonton police have responded to over 500 collisions that occurred throughout the city due to the icy streets. As a result, the city has halted their blading operations until further notice.\nThe snowstorm on Tuesday was followed by visibility issues and frosty road conditions for all drivers, so it's no surprise that the police have had respond to literally hundreds of crashes in the past 48 hours.\nAccording to CTV News, the police had to act in response to a total of 229 collisions between 5 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday.\nAdd that to the 279 collisions that were reported by Edmonton Journal on Tuesday, and the police had quite a challenging situation on their hands.\nThis brings up the total number of collisions to 508 in the last 48 hours.\nOf these collisions, 58 of them were hit-and-runs, 32 were injury collisions, and 418 of these crashes led to property damage, according to the statistics posted the Edmonton Journal.\nAs a result of the snow accumulation, the City of Edmonton paused their blading efforts on residential streets, which had just begun on Monday anyway, reports Global News.\nView this post on Instagram The roads may be bad here in Edmonton today but boy is this snow pretty on the trees!

They will primarily be directing their plowing efforts on Priority 1 and 2 routes.\nOfficials have told CTV that they hope to resume blading by the end of the week but nothing has been confirmed so far.\nView this post on Instagram Life is truly a mystery to be enjoyed! Yesterday was a Sunny day here in Edmonton and I could hear birds singing everywhere, so I wrote a song titled Spring is in the Air. Then I shaved my beard! While talking with my Beloved Diana @dianarealfoodforlife I said to her More Sun means More Fun! Hmmmm More Sun! More Fun! I liked the Rhythm of that phrase and proceeded to write a Hot JuicyJuicy Blues 😎in A! More Sun ☀️ More Fun! 💃🏾 Then later Diana and I watched a live broadcast from Maui a Celebration Service of Ram Dass life journey. One of the speakers said that Ram Dass always encouraged us to be more in our Hearts and less in our thinking minds. The speaker said Ram Dass used a mantra to help him shift into his Heart space. The mantra is simply ..I Am Loving Awareness... and you know the rest right? Yes another song came flowing through my Boundless Being. Well there you have it! A day in the life of JuicyJuicyJazz and how inspiration and songs flow to me and through me. ZenJoy the Snow Show! As my newest song plays in the background. #yegweather #yegsnow #yegwintercity #yegwinter #ramdass #iamlovingawareness #mantras #satsang #songwritingprocess #letitsnowletitsnow #sacredsong #inspirationiseverywhere #baritoneukuleleplayer #ukuleleplayers #ukulelesongwriter #ukeonukestrong #kalaukelele #ukutime #snowflakeshowcase #lifeisamystery #iwritethesongs #snowdays #winterwonderland❄️ #ramdassgoinghome #ramdasscelebrationoflife #spiritualawareness #beherenow #bestillandknow Wanna build a snowman? @tenthumbspro @plazi @ramdass_goinghome_film @lover_and_a_fighter @thesongtailors @the_art_of_handmade_dolls @ukulelesocaljack @ukulelescott @lornamam82 @sharp_lorraine @karen.rempel @humblekingtashaun @tl0p @str8vibinwitladyj @drsbopnpop @timmy_uke75 @camborisch @daniukuleleworld @ukeandsmile @gorolele @bliss4glory @brookepalmermusic @sizzle_belle @flora_kay_ukes @radu.uke @ansaldoflor @elainefalvey @friedchen_27 @parecidauke @ukulelemomster @anni_z_53 @roslyfox @macstil @dster2013 @travelingukesmith @uke_ap @mistybellmusic2 @theukulelefool @newukenewyork @gilescharleen @annieriksonmusic @hallelujahanasuya @getflairfitworldwide @tha_suntan_superman @itty_bitty_fitish_ A post shared by Roylin Ld Picou (@juicyjuicyjazz) on Feb 11, 2020 at 10:42am PST\nEdmonton has had its share of horrific weather in the past few months, with temperatures in January dipping below -45 C.\nCBC reports that more snow is on the menu for Thursday, as the city expects about 2 centimetres of snow accumulation ahead of Valentine's Day.\nNarcity spoke to Edmonton Police, who are urging drivers to be cautious. "We are encouraging motorists to drive to the road conditions and allow extra time for travel, just given the icy conditions.
