They are saying it might have a mixture of rain and snow on Sunday, which 99% means even if it did slush it will just melt right away. I expect nothing but rain

Disconnect all hoses from the bibs around your property. The last thing you want is busted pipes. Although, it never gets cold enough in our neck of the woods. The hoses themselves will thank you for bringing them indoors. I made the mistake of leaving one coiled up outside over the winter. Cheap Costco shit. Their hoses suck monkey balls, BTW.

When does the mountain open? Looked on their site but the mobile view isn't the best th navigate.

Had a blast up at whistler last weekend, Monday was fuckin empty it was great. Though I still got lots of practice ahead of me. End of the day I fell a few times on blue's but after like 5 hours of skiing my legs were wobbly

The only thing I hate about snow is shovelling. Long driveway and about 100' of sidewalk to deal with as well. If it's a bad one this year might have to buck up for a snowblower.

Edit:
Oh ya, also hate dipshits in lifted trucks/SUVs ripping around because they don't realize that just because their vehicles move forward well in the show doesn't mean they can stop just as well.

skies look clear tonight. I also doubt there will be 5cm-10cm of snow on Thursday.

Weather channels being 100% accurate in Vancouver is like the Canucks winning games.

Few cm here, still falling.

Initial reaction: Yay, get to test my new snow tires and AWD.
Second reaction: Boo, 90% of everyone else on the road is probably on cheap, shitty all-seasons.

Driving in Richmond will be even more dangerous now with the snow.


-looks like snow shovels will sell fast at Canadian Tire and other hardware stores.

Route to work is from Richmond to Oak and 25th area via Arthur Lang. Traveling around Richmond, the roads didn't look like they were salted/plowed, but there wasn't that much snow. Seen the usual BMW SUV's going 20-30km/h faster than everyone else and Corolla's driving 20-30km/h slower than everyone else.

The ramp from Marine Drive onto Oak street was completely blocked due to buses.
Went north up Cambie instead, traveling behind a Cadillac that was going really slow up the hill and eventually pulled to the side. Lots of pick up trucks stopped on the side, blocking 1 lane on either side. On the south side, various cars spun out or stopped blocking the lane going down Cambie.

Made it to work on time, only had to leave 15mins early.
Blizzak WS80's performed great, as usual.

Coming down from SFU was pretty bad since I left before Mr. Plow or the Plow King woke up. Quite a few abandoned cars a long the side of the road.
Buses are getting stuck going up Hastings from Vancouver, let along up to SFU.

My Goodyear DT's worked great and locked the truck in 4wd mode.
I have my tow straps ready.
Free tows or rescues for hot girls.
