Well it’s official. We have our first Snow Day of 2011! Both Vancouver Island University and SD70 are closed. Nanaimo SD is closed as well according to CKNW.
It is currently sleeting and/or raining. So this snow is going to get very heavy very quickly. I wouldn’t shovel it unless you absolutely have to. What I would do is make sure all the drains are clear so that the water has somewhere to go. It is going to rain today and then should get very warm, up to 7C, today or tonight and the melt will set it.
So if you can, get out there and enjoy it while it’s there!
