There’s been a few false alarms but on Sunday morning, B.C.’s south coast woke up to a light layer of snow blanketing the region.
Temperatures hit below zero degrees in the region, giving the south coast a slight taste of what the rest of B.C. – and Canada – have been seeing for months.
But although locals took to social media to show their excitement, many seemed conscious that Sunday’s light dusting wasn’t really anything to get too worked up about.

It's currently snowing in #yvr. Woohoo! I predict the news reports will be filled with accidents, lineups for snow shovels, and a general Lower Mainland freakout. #BCStorm #PrayforVancouver pic.twitter.com/CEmkl1RFpA
