Just went to McDonald's & back. The roads in Vancouver have been cleared and salted.

We got a foot out here in the Wack and it's still coming down.


Oh and just for clarification.... On Saturday didn't the forecast call for 20-30cm of snow today and you all called them trolls?

Berz out.

Most schools are open. I think the only colleges that are closed are SFU Burnaby and Douglas.

You guys can keep updated via this link:

Hwy 1 eastbound from 246th on, is terrible. Has not been cleared. Add to this not much traffic heading that way in the morning and the snow gets to pile up. Dumb ass drivers not slowing down when changing lanes or making quick lane changes with little to no warning.

Lights are out at 41st/Knight, Kingsway/Knight. Noticed on my drive in to work this morning. Had to take sidestreets to make it to work on time. The snow was no trouble with my subie + snowshoes.

Vancouver has ~40 plow/salt trucks
Toronto has ~1500 plow/salt trucks

I do not wish to pay more taxes to clear snow a couple days a year. People can deal with it for a few hours until it melts, or grab a shovel.

I don't know of any car that has an undertray that blocks between the firewall and the engine.
