The last few days I have been watching how they are cleaning the streets in our complex! I have watched all winter but they have changed their tactics now…
Now they are chopping the ice and hauling it off one wheelbarrow at a time.
The normal method is to use huge homemade stick brooms –>
Then just sweep the snow up in piles and haul it off in a wheelbarrow… (When the snow is to deep to sweep – we don’t remove it!)
When we lived in Moscow, City there was a combination snowplow and workers like this, cleaning the streets. Here where we live now (Moscow Region), I have not seen a snowplow but I have seen a couple of road-graders…
It is interesting to watch them because when it starts snowing again they disappear. No more chopping ice for the day. It started to snow a few minutes ago and they scurried as fast as they can… 🙂
Now you know a little more about Russia!
Windows to Russia!
PS: Tidbit of information – It was -15 degrees Celsius when I took these pictures!
