Snowfall in Nanaimo

Nanaimo's Dreaming of a White Christmas

Sunday morning Nanaimo residents awoke to about 30 cm or 1 foot of the white fluffy stuff.

Unlike the usual wet, slushy stuff which tries to pass for snow in Nanaimo, this time we got some of that light and fluffy and really pretty genuine snow.

Shoveling or sweeping it aside was a breeze and if we have to get snow, this is the best kind.

Roads were pretty treacherous in places with the snow hiding the layer of ice which had developed on roads and highways the night before. There were many examples of drivers being unfamiliar with conditions sliding around corners and in some cases parking in the ditch.

If you don't have good tires and if you are really unfamiliar with driving in these conditions, take a ride on our transit system if you need to travel.
