POLL: How has winter road maintenance been in the South Okanagan so far this season?

The sun is shining and for the most part, the roads are clear.

For the moment this eight degree weather is a nice break from the cold which has consumed the valley since the start of the year. It’s an opportunity to breathe and take a break from shovelling your driveway.

Last week, we asked readers what they thought to be the most frustrating intersection in Penticton. So far, 576 readers have shared their views.
