Careful out there today and tomorrow. This snow will continue for a few more hours and then the cold will be back. Don’t drive if you don’t have to. Stay home with hot chocolate and play in the snow with your kids (or without! πŸ™‚ ).

There is a Blizzard Warning for the Fraser Valley!

UPDATE:
“For the Record”, as they say πŸ™‚ I phoned in to the Sever Weather Reporting Line with a snow amount of 15cm for the day as of around 8PM.

It’s snowing lightly still and we’re supposed to get flurries tonight along with the cold.

Interesting fact I heard on the radio today. The salt they use on the Highways lowers the freezing temperature to -7C on the road surface, so temperatures any lower than that, which we’re supposed to get over the next few days, and everything will turn to rock hard slick ice.

Be careful out there. But have fun πŸ™‚ My kids had funa apparently today… as I fought the Blizzard in Nanaimo. πŸ™‚
