Sorry I should have said Vancouverites.

Just drive cautiously no need to go 20 over the limit like I been seeing the last few days and we all make it home to our families. We are getting dumped on good right now with this snow. FML

Did a 180 spinout on Thursday coming off the Henday onto Gateway Blvd. That was fun!

Didn't go off the road and no cars immediately nearby at least!

I have zero issue with a winter blast. This whole melt one day, freeze next day, rain next day, snow next day, freeze next day is becoming a pain. Just stay at -10 and be done with already.

The hyperbole today. The radio is going nuts about all the snow, and Spector on Twitter said there is 6 inches! 6 inches, there isn't even 6cm yet. Where is all this snow I ask, because my part of town hardly has anything right now. More snow please.

I live just north of the city. We have about 4 inches right now. I had a look at the radar and it looks like it is snowing a little heavier on the north side.

Dammit I was going to rake the lawn.

It was just getting dry enough again to do that.

All these neighbors have some kind of mutant trees/bushes where the leaves don't fall off when it gets cold. Thus they just started to fall when the first snow storm hit. So the rot will continue to screw with my grass til next spring..

Worse still the leaves are not even from any of my trees. I have evergreens.

Riverbend, South Side. I got about 3-4cm right now, but it seems to be picking up a bit.

Well the drive to work was interesting made it in about an hour in what's usually a 30 minutes drive. I should have got new tires before going on vacation. Now I'm ****ed and everyone is booked solid for a week. This is going to be interesting, if anyone see a grey 2-door Honda accord steer clear she might just start going sideways at any point, but that sounds about par with every other vehicle out there today.

Various tweets are basically saying any road with a hill is shut down...

Connors, 23rd Ave reportedly closed. I imagine McDougall, 105st, etc. aren't exactly passable either.

Woke up this morning, got 2 blocks away from my house when I realized that (after seeing an accident already, and losing control of my car like 3 times) today is a good day to take a sick day.
