snow… maybe stop snowing, thanks?
The continuous snowfall has seen daily commutes turn into slushy messes this morning, with traffic backed up, cars sliding, and portions of the city deemed too slippery for Calgary’s buses to even attempt.
The snowfall warning from Environment Canada is still in effect, though snowfall is expected to cease later this afternoon.
Calgary will see up to 10 more centimetres of snow before Mother Nature calls it quits however, according to the warning released around 9:30 am Saturday morning.
“A slow moving upper low over BC continues to spread snow into southern Alberta. Snow will gradually taper off this afternoon,” the release read.
Calgary Transit’s Twitter account has been active this morning, alerting potential riders of delays, cancellations, and an entire portion of NW Calgary that is being detoured around.

As of around 9 am, routes #7, #2, #8, #94, #93, #17, and #20 are on a snow detour.
And, as a cherry on top of an already troubling morning, Calgary Police Service has reported that another seven vehicles have been stolen this morning as they were left unlocked and idling.
No one likes a cold car, but a stolen car is even worse.

Bundle up out there, Calgary; it’s feeling like -23°C!
