Halifax airport offering shovels to people arriving home

Friday, March 20, 2015, 4:48 PM - It's a harsh return to reality for Halifax residents returning home from vacation. After receiving about 90 centimetres of snow in the past week, airport officials are handing out shovels for people to dig their cars out of the long-term parking lot.

"We do have shovels if needed,” spokesmen Ashley Gallant told Metro News.

“Though I know the idea of shovelling in your sandals isn’t a pleasant thought.”

Gallant says most of the airport's parking spaces haven't been plowed yet.

Another storm is expected to hit the province this weekend -- but this time, Nova Scotia could see rain.

That will be followed by a cool down, raising the risk of slippery conditions next week.
