IMO, they should just leave the f'in roads alone for now. There is way more traction on snow than ice. Tomorrow is supposed to get really cold, so I think anything they do today will just contribute to the roads being an ice rink tomorrow.

My condo over looks Vernon aka Blandshard and the plows have been going by pretty regularly. I agree about the traction thing, I would like to see them just skim the road to keep the snow levels down but not to completly clear it.

hwy from royal into town was fine. Sannich > boleskine is deadly. the snow was just getting packed heavier and heavier, although i did see some plows heading towards saanich road near blanshard intersection about an hour ago.

burnside road is fine, mckenzie is good, bare and wet. Most of shelbourne is ok. When you get into Mount Doug Park, it gets a little slippery. Royal Oak drive has a single lane paved through. They could have done a better job, but it is drivable.

Cordova Bay road is slick, but way better than any of the side roads in the sunnymead circle. There is 1 lane paved through the sunnymead circle and its sketchy. Definately looks like a quick carve and run. Glad to see our tax dollars working so poorly.

anyways, hope that helps those that need to get out and about. I cant wait to see how icy it is when its time for me to work at 10pm

Shelboure is clear. Mt Doug is a little slushy. The corners in the intersections in most places are rough.

The snow is starting to come down hard around Royal Oak and is stickng to the road again. Its going to get ugly here soon since the plows aren't comng aorund fast enough. Tomorrow morning is going to be interesting.

hmm, I followed two plows all the way down McKenzie at ~1ish, you must have passed earlier?

Approximately 11pm and 2:30am... I didn't see a difference between the two times. This was between Quadra and Shelbourne.

Roads in Langford are decent right now. Just drove wifey to work, and the roads were all plowed. I'd call it 'packed powder' and decent traction.

just commuted from Sooke to James Bay (Dallas Rd.) and the roads weren't too bad, the Pulsar seemed to fair ok.

Craigflower is snow/slush covered starting at Admirals. Other then that no where was really that bad.

Commerce Circle/Glanford/Vanalman was a mess this morning. Cars parked all over the place who can't get up the hill on one side of the circle. Snow a foot deep because it hadn't been plowed. I'm sure things will get better as the day goes on.

I was going good this morning until I found out Burnside was closed between Alpha and Dupplin.

I had to turn down Alpha, it wasn't plowed, I got stuck.

You'd think the City of Victria would plow a detour route that Buses have to use.

I got high centered on the snow at the bottom of the hill in the rabbit - headed downhill.

Who drives lowered cars in the snow anyways?

PS: Its Heather, not Greg.

Make a youtube account if you don't already have one... And upload through there. It's really easy! But might take a while if the video's kinda big, so maybe compress it if you can.

I guess I'll post a couple of mine from picking up my brother from work Sunday night in a Civic...

This was on McKenzie by Carey Rd. Wasn't going too fast, and nobody was already.

This was on Cedar Hill. Lost control once at the end. Got it out after a couple pushes.
