Winter has finally come to White Rock, with the white stuff falling all weekend and closing the hilly, vertically inclined roads all around the B.C. coastal town.
The pier and train tracks are flush with snow – also known as neige, so we keep this bilingual and uber Canadian – and the parking still isn't free, and the Pacific Ocean looks even bigger, deeper, and colder.
On Monday, Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver, with 5-to-15 cm predicted for today. (As of 1:31 p.m. PST, it continues to fall.)
"Late this afternoon or early this evening milder Pacific air will invade and cause the snow to change over to rain in most areas," the government's climate bureau reads. "During the change over localized freezing rain is possible over the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley."
