Canada Geese are overrated. Except in their ability to destroy a park with their feces. Then they are severely underestimated.

-18C with a -30C windchill right now. Supposed to be -7C this afternoon. I'll believe it when I see it. The warm air is currently heading East and is closing in on Gull Lake now which is at -12C. Maple Creek at 2C (40km West.)

I don’t think they’re affected too much around here, The lowest temp so far this winter in the city is -19C at the Windsor-Riverside weather station. I’m pretty sure they can deal with those kinds of temps, and probably even out at the airport where it has gone down to -22.6C.

Well if they can handle nearly minus twenty then they're never leaving southern BC haha.
And if they haven't left Castlegar by now they aren't leaving this year at all. And maybe they never leave I just assume they do.

Shoveling 3cm of ice pellets is significantly worse than 30 cm of snow. RIP my back.

Everyone on Twitter is comparing it to sand dunes lol. It is cool to walk in though. It's so heavy. And when you slam your foot down it sprays out almost like a parabolic arch or whatever that low gravity thing is called.

It sounds like sand when you throw it out of the shovel. So dumb.

Do you mean a non-Newtonian fluid?

No that type of near-perfect arch like the astronauts boots made with the sand while they walked on the moon.

Whatever lightning there it, it won't last long. Looks like a massive snowstorm is heading to coastal BC.

To quote The Weather Network;

"UPDATE: Over the next 5 days, the MOST snow on the ENTIRE PLANET will fall in British Columbia! Accumulations on the Coastal Mountains may approach 200 cm!"

200cm? Jeezus.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was some lightning in Vancouver today considering how the sky over the North Shore looked. Meanwhile to the south was some blue sky and sunshine.

200cm of snow is over 6.5 feet. That would be fun!
