10 Thoughts: Snowpocalypse 2016

Winter descended upon us Vancouverites on Monday, December 5 with the first snowfall of the year. It was pretty bad, but it didn’t end there as Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning three days later. As we collectively hold our breaths in anticipation of Snowpocalypse 2016, here are ten thoughts:

  1. Just what we need. After braving the rain for two months straight (literally. it rained 28 days in October and 25 in November), our reward is a snowstorm. Double-whammy.
  2. My reaction on Monday morning during the first snowfall of the year.
  3. This is what commuters saw as they opened up Google Maps at 9:15am on Monday morning. No better time to put those PJs back on and hop back into the sack…
  4. … which is what I did when I found out my presentation that day was cancelled due to the snow. For a good reason too- this is what it was like on the mountain.
  5. lol montreal. I thought you guys were supposed to be used to snow. (Also on Monday)
  6. The second snowstorm was all over the news, with an expected 10-15cm of snow. Definitely more than last year’s whopping 0.00cm, but who can forget 2008?
  7. Remember the last time there was a big storm scare? It was very underwhelming.
  8. It started like that as well. There was next to no snowfall overnight on Thursday, so waking up this morning was more disappointing than the World Cup of Hockey viewing party.
  9. It did end up coming down pretty hard on Friday, but not to this extent.
  10. It wasn’t all bad though, especially if you were inside all day.

Will this snow continue? I have my last final exam on Monday. On one hand, I hope it gets cancelled so I don’t have to do it. However, that would mean the exam being rescheduled for December 19. Sometimes you just can’t win.
