This is the Warm Report: designed with the same physics as the LRT and El Nino, this robot shovels the snow when it cannot be shovelled by humans. Since Canada is pouring all it's money into warmth, this will be used often. There may be a problem when it breaks through the ice, but I'm sure they have thought of that. They also may have to add a plough.
ps. the physics of snow loading on thin ice is amazing. I was thinking about it, and it involves extreme instability. Can't wait to see how anything zooms over it.
