Snow slams BC and Pacific NW


British Columbia’s Fraser Valley is getting hit with snow and lots of it – more than 20 cm at last count in Abbotsford.

Nearby Vancouver, Victoria and the Gulf Islands have gotten off easy this time with just a centimetre or two.

In a region normally accustomed to rain, the storm system is also dumping lots of snow over America’s Pacific Northwest with at least 30 cm (12 inches) expected for Seattle, Washington and 10-15 cm (6 inches) could fall in Portland, Oregon.

This is the most snow these cities have seen in at least 15 years.
