I was wondering why there was so much salt on the roads this morning?
Literially, the streets were white with salt when I was driving in to work this morning.

Sidewalks were covered in frost.
But when I pulled up to the red light on Burnaby Mountain Parkway and Duthie, that intersection had an unusual amount of salt on the ground.

Because that intersection is at the bottom hill, I guess there was a stream of water that froze overnight, which needed the ice since the salt brine wouldn't have been enough.

Crazy slippery this morning. Wasn't worth going out to get Starbucks, lol. Gonna rain later and for the rest of the week. At least the days are getting longer. Still lots of time for it to snow. We've had snow up to mid April.

Highly doubt it if your talking about lower mainland. Meteorologists cant predict the 7 days forecast in metro Vancouver, let alone 3 days ahead and your sources are talking about half a month in advance lol..

Wondering should I take my snow tires off... treads are kind of too soft for the road when there's no snow to buffer, and since there isn't actually any snow, my tires are wearing out at a relatively fast rate...

How many km are you driving?? I'd rather use them when they work best, or keep them for 10 years and have them harden/dry out


Anyways, whistler ski lessons tomorrow!! Heard they are getting one hell of a dump right now. Kinda hope for rain so the roads are clear lol

Only chance of snow in the lower mainland is a month long deep freeze and pineapple express whamming us.

We haven't even had any major dumps up north yet. Lots of small stuff but no big amounts all at once.

Berz out.

I just swapped my summers back on and I'm in Smithers. I would think anyone down south is safe to swap now. If it does snow down there it will be gone by noon.

It has snowed a couple times in the last week but like I said it's gone by noon. It's still -8 here over night but warms up pretty good in the day time.

Berz out.
