It’s not that I thought people were lying to me, but we’ve experienced our first snowfall here over the past day. While the forecast was for less than 1cm of snow, it’s nice to know that the meteorologists here are no better than they are anywhere else. We received about 9 cm of the white stuff yesterday and overnight, and I had to shovel the driveway twice (once yesterday and once this morning).
The one thing that makes that not so bad is that the snow here is FAR lighter than anything we ever had fall on us in Campbell River. It only took me about 30 minutes to shovel the drive, about half the time and twice the square footage that I had to deal with in CR. Once the snow stopped and the sun came out it made for a great day.
I have determined that we live in a bit of a snow bowl though. There’s hardly any snow in Westbank, about 10 km away, and there’s absolutely no accumulation at Winfield, which is about 20 km in the other direction. That could be ominous as time goes by…..
