It seems to be unanimous… we’re going to get some snow over the next few days. How Much? EC says 5-10cm tomorrow… will we get that? More? Less? All Weekend? Will there be school on Monday?

Who knows!

All we can do is wait for the white fluffies to start falling from the sky.

Update: (Jan 29,12:42PM)
Finally!! We got lots of snow. There was about 18cm, 8″ this morning when I woke up. (6th and Redford). There is apparently lots more out at the lake… over a foot (30cm) by some accounts.

To answer Cindy in the Comments… the snow has stopped, and the major streets in Port Alberni are plowed and wet now. The sun has come out, so it has melted what was left from the scrape.

You may notice that the Weather Camera has changed slightly. I have installed a filter (ND2 Gradual Grey) that has made the picture much brighter! I’ve also received my replacement camera (because I burned the lens of the first one… those are the pink streaks you see).

A wonderful day! Hope everyone enjoys the snow and sun! I know my kids are enjoying it!
