I had to pass a fishtailing unmarked police cruiser on Knight St on my way to work this morning.

Had no problems with sliding or anything, but then, I drive an impreza with snow tires.

I'm looking forward to an extra healthy dumping of snow throughout the day. I really hope this doesn't turn to rain.

Shoveled the driveway for the first time this season.... It's nice when it's light and fluffy.

Berz out.

Drove from Richmond to SFU Burnaby, no problems at all. Audi A4 with snow tires handled it very well...Even when a snow plow in front of me on highway 91 plowed snow onto my lane; Smart car behind me kept fishtailing, luckily he kept a safe distance from me.

We've shoveled the driveway at the shop 3 times already this morning. We also had to cancel a few appointments and not loan out the courtesy cars in this weather. Last thing we need is a wrecked courtesy car because some customer doesn't know how to drive in the snow.

@TRDood, it's still coming down hard at Knight/Kingsway, and covering/sticking everywhere.

I've driven up the Coquihalla in blizzards before, with all season tires in a turbocharged FWD car. That's rather sketchy. This is nothing compared to that.

I've decided 225 wide tires aren't very good for snow, even though they're snow tires. Lol. Langley sucks right now...

I'm loving the Limited Slip in the MS3. For a Turbo FWD car, it goes great in the snow.

I thought we were only suppose to get 5-10cm of snow LOL and then turn into rain sometime mid-afternoon. Now weather network say:
Thursday Afternoon: close to 10cm
Thursday Evening: close to 10cm

24-Hour Precipitation Outlook
15-20 cm of snow from Thursday Afternoon to Friday Morning

less than 1cm on Friday
less than 1cm on Saturday
close to 1cm on Sunday
1-3cm on Monday....

So long as you avoid 200th St between Hwy 1 and 64th, you should be fine. Major accident at 74'ish involving a flipped SUV. The rest of the city is mostly fine, though the snow is still piling up on the roads.

After one day, I've decided that my old 185/50/15 Toyo Proxy4's are MUCH better than my 225/40/18 Bridgestone Blizzak LM-22's.

Damn.
