You may have noticed it’s been a little bit colder this past week. Okay, a lot colder, so much so that the Fraser River has ice flowing in it.

The ice floating in the river fortunately won’t be a danger to any ships, it’s just cool to look at.

Ice In The Fraser River


As arctic air is descending throughout the province, a brush of cold weather dropped temperatures down to a – 14 C and a high of only 0 C this week.


With another 2 to 4 centimeters of snow on the way for Metro Vancouver for Friday, be sure to bundle up.


As a result, Emergency Response Shelters open for those in need in Surrey and White Rock. Call for availability.
