Vancouver’s first snowfall of the season was… anti-climactic, to say the least.
Accumulation varied across parts of the Lower Mainland and despite the sub-zero temperatures, there really wasn’t as much snow as residents were expecting.
But even if there wasn’t enough snow for a “true Canadian winter,” it was still enough to give Vancouverites a laugh.

The rain this morning in Vancouver is very peculiar. Slow and lazy like, dry. #snow

One snowflake hits the ground in @cityofvancouver and the entire city turns into an episode of “Canada’s Worst Driver”. So glad I work from home. The commute from my bed to my desk is treacherous. #vancouver #snow #canadasworstdriver

Before you start…. no this is not snow, hold yourselves together, no #Vancouver snowmageddon happening…. think of it as a light dusting or powdered sugar. #winter ❄ is tame here.… https://t.co/CbKrbP3FPr

The rest of Canada laughed when they found out the Polar Vortex and snow was coming to Vancouver. So mean. Just look at the damage caused today.#SnowMageddon2019 #Vancouver #PolarVortex #YVR #BCstorm pic.twitter.com/U5UaSDgphE

Someone bailed on our Super Bowl party yesterday because of the “bad snow storm” we got in Vancouver.
This photo was the only snow I could find that stuck to something. #snowpocalypse pic.twitter.com/8h8kzuepQ0

The “terrible conditions” continue to plague Vancouver. There was a slight covering of snow on the sidewalk this morning. Even the occasional icy patch. Maybe I shouldn’t have worn shorts for my run? (4 consecutive)  #AirWreckRuns

why does everyone immediately forget basic driving laws when it snows? 🙄 #vancouversnow
