More Snow Coming For Nanaimo

Another Snowfall Warning for Nanaimo

What was that we say about the 'banana belt' and 'at least we don't have to shovel it'?

Nanaimo snow removal systems have already been stretched beyond their capacity and Nanaimo residents clearly demonstrate their lack of ability to deal with the white stuff.

As if the 50+ centimetres we already have weren't enough the weatherman is calling for another snowfall which could deliver 10 - 20 cm more of the white stuff.

The following warning appears on the weather network website:

SNOWFALL WARNING: East Vancouver Island Issued at 4:11 AM PST TUESDAY 23 DECEMBER 2008

10 TO 20 CM OF SNOW EXPECTED TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. THIS IS A WARNING THAT SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED OR OCCURRING IN THESE REGIONS. MONITOR WEATHER CONDITIONS..LISTEN FOR UPDATED STATEMENTS.

It's kind of ironic, only in Nanaimo does the Santa Claus parade get cancelled because of the snow, and now people wanting to travel for that 'White Christmas' may just have to stay at home.

How's that song go? Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Delightful .... isn't it!
