B.C. Storm: Snow blankets Metro Vancouver, closing schools and slowing traffic

[From The Vancouver Sun]

Are you feeling Canadian yet?

More snow for the South Coast beginning this afternoon. Snowfall warnings in effect for several regions: #BCstorm

#SkyTrain is experiencing delays and gaps in service due to weather & heavy passenger loads. Please allow additional time for your commute this morning. Thank-you for your patience! ^DA

If you can, you may want to delay your commute this morning – here’s the scene at Commercial-Broadway #SkyTrain @NEWS1130 Thanks @TransLink for trying to keep things moving!

First train in 25 minutes. Two of the doors weren't opening. Probably because people were pushing them open to get on. #newwestminster #skytrain #bcstorm #mytranslink #delays

#ServiceNotice #Brentwood #MillBay #Klitsa operating 40 minutes behind schedule due to adverse weather conditions and snow removal. ^as

#BCHwy1 Beautiful view on your morning commute over the #PortMannBridge. Slow down and drive with extra care in winter conditions. #ShiftIntoWinter #BCSnowStorm

We failed to mention “turn your headlights on” because it’s not a snow-specific tip & some took this as a loophole. “Turn your headlights on when it’s not broad daylight”. But also the other stuff too, snow tires, brush snow off entire car, slow down…

Winter Driving Conditions and #YVR #VanIsle ~ Road crews have been plowing, sanding, & salting overnight.
