We have a snowfall warning in effect here in Edmonton. What began as rain in the hours shortly after midnight, soon became snow with ice beneath. The above photo was taken around 7am this morning.
Above and the following two photos were taken this afternoon. It has snowed almost continuously ever since.
One of our major thoroughfares was closed to all but those who had snow tires. Police were on hand to enforce it! There were semis jackknifed across a road, beneath a bridge and several near misses. There's about 2 inches of ice beneath all the snow on the roads. Very treacherous indeed.
My husband picked me up from work this afternoon and said what usually takes 12-15 minutes took him an hour to get there from home.
This is our forecast.
Winter is here.
