Snow dump transforms Metro Vancouver into winter wonderland (PHOTOS)

Jan 6 2022, 5:07 pm

An overnight snowstorm blanketed Metro Vancouver in several centimetres of packing snow, and many residents woke up Thursday morning to their neighbourhoods looking completely transformed.

Several post-secondary institutions cancelled classes, making it a true snow day for many students.

Residents may only have a limited time to walk in the winter wonderland, though. Environment Canada says the weather could turn to freezing rain during the day Thursday, which could wash away some of the snow.
