    I know its not a lot compared to the rest of Canada...but Vancouver seems to be getting a lot more snow this year. They are saying another 10-20cm overnight tonight.

    What you guys think of all this snow?

    I love it! I love driving in the snow cause its fun. I have a 4x4 so I have no problem getting around. Also I snowboard, so snow is good for the mountains!

    Anyone have snow pictures?

    Yeah - I measured 16" when I shoveled this afternoon, quite the workout. not looking forward to the plow pushing the ice onto the driveway and sidewalk again.

    Good thing I got offered tickets to California and then the Bahamas!

    Not sure how Vancouver is, but I heard it got a lot by their standards.

    I was in West Vancouver this morning and they had maybe a third of what we had in Coquitlam and it was melting too so they might have even less now.

    you guys have the space it plow it somewhere! We've had another dump last night, and there's just no more room to shovel it to anywhere. With five of us digging away, the Wife couldn't get throw the morning plow wash in time, so the kids are home for one more day :(

    Sooooo Mr Night Life, how is the 348 handling your 16" of daily snow? :D
