I woke up with sun beaming through the bedroom curtains. The voice at the local radio station coming through my alarm clock said it was “frigid” outside but the warmth radiating from my window was quite comforting. As I was getting ready to head out this morning my mother called and said it’s a “white out” in Surrey. She couldn’t even see her neighbour’s house and my brother in law who was on the highway called to tell her to stay in today, and not go driving anywhere. As this was in complete contrast with everything I was viewing out my balcony I looked up a few local webcams to get the scoop (all still shots are from around 10:00am today)
The Katkam in Vancouver (what I am seeing)
Boundary Road & The Queensborough in New Westminster
Willingdon at Highway 1
Port Mann Bridge
and going the other way on the Port Mann
It might not be too long before that front rolls over this way but in the meantime if you’re heading out today, check the local highway cams and traffic reports to make sure you’re not going to get stuck anywhere unprepared.
