Bulldozer at 3 a.m.

An interesting observation that I would never expect to see after a snow storm in the UK:

At 3 o'clock in the morning I am awake (jet lag) and decide to look out of the hotel window here in Calgary. There, across the street is a bulldozer scraping away at the frozen snow and ice. It is extremely cold - says the current temperature is -10ÂșC - and there is this guy running a bulldozer back and forth across, wait for it, a parking lot!
