Unusual snow, cold slows morning rush

The morning commute was chaos yesterday as the heavy — and late — snowfall made roads slippery.

“This much snow is unusual (in March),” said John McIntyre, a meteorologist for Environment Canada.

“On a 30-year average it shows about three centimetres in March and we’ve had well over that.”

Derek Zabel, spokesperson for Coast Mountain Bus Company, said officials are on alert as forecasters call for freezing temperatures overnight for the next few days.

“If there is going to be freezing temperatures the worry is that there could be the potential for black ice and frozen parts of the roads,” he said.
