Maybe 6-7 cm here, still coming down. Was hoping for more as my cat loves the snow and it's a lot of fun to play with him when there's a good 6"-8" on the ground. He likes to chase after snowballs hopping through the snow.

No issues myself driving in from Burnaby to downtown this morning, but saw a bunch of trucks, buses and BMWs stuck on Boundry Rd and the hill up 29th ave.

Two things really made me angry this morning, all the stupid idiots going 10-30km/h I was stuck behind, if you don't have proper tires to handle snow, stay off the road you morons, and driving down Dunsmuir seeing City of Vancouver crews clearing snow from the bike lanes while some streets still needed clearing Seriously? Fuck the bike lanes, who the hell rides their bike in the snow, maybe 0.00001 of the population? So stupid

A fair amount in North Burnaby. Also, fair amount in Abbotsford. Saw many a vehicles in the ditch on Hwy 1. Pretty scary.......... people with no snow tires, I guess. I was averaging 80km/hr with no issues. Loving the Hakkapelitta's .

Still a lot of dumbasses who are too lazy to clear their cars of snow. It may be OK for them, but when they are on the freeway, all that shit blows onto others behind them. I even saw a couple of cars with no tail lights on. At 6 am and in the snow.......... nuff said.

DRL's are causing more issues than any other feature on a car.

stupidest thing ever, especially on the new cars were the dash/cluster lights come on making the idiot driver think their lights are on with decently bright headlights and yet no tail lights

I've heard nothing but good reviews about the Hakks. They may be my next snowie set - how well do they wear?

As for DRL's - they aren't the issue as much as the car companies that have the dash lights also turn on automatically, making people oblivious to turn on their lights for tails.

We got only 3" here last night after a good start it slowed right down. But it is still snowing, they say a few more inches are going to drop

Commute from Vancouver to Maple Ridge was a breeze. The usual morons as mentioned by others.

SH-AWD + Michelin XICE XI3 tires = fun times

No problems getting from South Burnaby to North Burnaby a little earlier. Some areas have more snow than others but overall's okay.

Some guy in an SUV came to a dead stop infront of me in the middle of an intersection for no apparent reason. The SUV stopped there until the light turned yellow then drove off making other cars and myself wait for that light -_-

I would've laid on my horn the entire time until they moved. Who the hell does that..

Stylingred, you're in my area I see yayyy e van lol

7seven I fully agree. So many are run summers I just don't understand. I have all seasons all year round and have winters. Are summers cheaper priced than all seasons, is this why people buy them?
