Default Strange white substance falling from the sky..

I'm not sure what exactly it was, but there seemed to be a fair bit of it coming down...some strange new form of precipitation maybe?

It seemed kinda slippery on the roads too...by golly I almost had to chain up to make it up the hill to Allison Pass! I seem to remember a similar weather phenomenon sometime ago, but it's been so long...

Judging by the Coquihalla Webcam right now, Manning got more than Coquihalla. It looks pretty bear (haha) near the great bear snowshed.

Ya, there's something funny going on here in Pemberton, too. Coming back from my friends house, my truck was covered in all this white stuff, and it's all wet, yet it's not raining?!? What the? And when I was driving, I could barely see because this white stuff was all over the place. Is this what they call winter?
