So wtf?



Looks like the "storm" is being very selective.

It really does depend on where along the coast you're situated, it seems. I know the islands took the brunt of the storm, which meant the mainland received a somewhat lessened blow.

That said, it seemed to be at the higher elevations where it was the most noticeable. I drove into town from Kamloops on Saturday night, right in the middle of the storm and let me tell you that was a mistake. I was watching vehicles being buffeted around on the road. More than once I saw a truck suddenly jerk from one side of the road all the way across two other lanes and onto the other side of the road just from some of the blasts of wind. My car is small and low and even I was being knocked around like crazy. And don't get me started on all the rain and snow that was falling at the same time.

By the time I got to Langley and Abbotsford there were tons of roads closed due to downed tree, powerlines and floods and huge sections without power.

I know everyone here hates Vancity buzz but this is a valid point

It’s almost like some people are disappointed that BC wasn’t battered by 100 km/hr winds, or that major power outages didn’t sweep across the region.

BC Hydro reported 284,000 customers lost power during the storm, most were restored by this morning.

I know we didn't get hit too hard in Duncan, but it looks like Nanaimo and Victoria got hit pretty hard judging from the power outages maps on BC Hydro's website.

A co-worker who went to Tofino for storm watching said she was pretty disappointed because it was sunny most of the storm there, apparently.

Storm not strong enough. First world problem...... Like Lomac said, just be thankful for Vancouver Island. Whatever fuck you nature throws at us (storm, tsunami, earthquake), they will always take the hardest hits first and shield the mainland.

Big prop to BCHydro, these guys was definitely prepared. Outage website, communication flow on social media. Big improvement over last year. They have resources (crews) assigned pretty quick too. Perfect example of good customer service.
