Snow In Vancouver Means..

In anticipation of up to 10 centimetres of snow on Sunday, the City of Vancouver is starting to salt and sand major bus routes and roads near hospitals and schools.

Temperatures are then forecast to rise by Monday afternoon, followed by rain. Sounds like it's going to be messy.

It's already so cold in Vancouver that a 66-year-old record was broken this week. And with the snowfall warning for the South Coast, including the Lower Mainland, it got us thinking: What does snow in Vancouver mean, exactly?

It's not exactly the most well-equipped city when it comes to snow, and its citizens are, well, kind of wimpy. Yeah, we said it. We use umbrellas when snow is falling.

Here's what else snow in Vancouver means:

  • So. Many. Selfies.

    It's like you've never seen snow before.
  • Or you're freaking out. Whichever.

  • Then you realize you have inappropriate footwear.

    It's Vancouver and it's NOT SUPPOSED TO SNOW THIS MUCH.
  • You wait at the bus stop for 45 minutes, only to have three buses drive right past.

  • You can scream. We get it.

  • So you head home and use an oven mitt to brush snow off your windshield.

    Be honest, you don't own a real snow brush.
  • Until your hands freeze and you give up, hoping for the best.

  • Then your car gets stuck in an inch of snow.

  • By this point you're doing this...

  • ...While all of your friends and family in Eastern Canada are doing this.

  • And while those same friends and family in Toronto are doing this...

    LIKE IT'S A NORMAL DAY.
  • ...You decide to use the whole snow thing as an excuse to do this.
