Snowfall for the record book
 
Wow! It has been something else for Vancouver Island this February. This white stuff just keeps coming down! We are not use to or equipped to handle this!
We’ve had over 2 feet, which may not seem like much for many places, but has wrecked havoc for us. The airport and ferry terminal were even affected. Sailings and flights cancelled. The 2 main highways were also closed for a while. Accidents everywhere, oh boy. Life on the Island with summer tires, haha!
Oh, it snowed again yesterday. March can’t come soon enough!

Wow. Been an odd season here, but we're used to it

What a treat for the kids tho, eh?

I'll gladly share the love when it comes to snow!

For a change we havent had any big snow storms. A few 9 to 10 inches one but not bad. Had 1 1/2 inches of ice Tuesday. Ice sucks plain and simple.

Same here- a decent amount in total but no real big snowfalls.

Was one icy morning...the road was pretty bad driving to work, come to find out the plow went off the road a little north of town and so I had about 4 miles of untreated glare ice.

My wife just came back from Vancouver area, said the snow and ice were crazy and accidents everywhere, plus nobody expects it so no snow tires.
We live in northern Sask, so 4ft of snow is normal and -25 normal temp to 3 weeks of -43 lately, but we're used to it here, would be hard to get out for most people in the Vancouver area.

We only have gotten snow for February, and looks like some more coming before we see March. Over 2 1/2 feet has fallen already. 'smiliedoh'

Oh man!
There has been a lot of accidents here. Unfortunately the island is very well known for how bad drivers are if it snows. Now add the amount we got...chaos, mayhem, lol!
