Snow’s in, school’s out!
With all post-secondary schools cancelled for the day, BC Transit buses brought to a halt, and advisories against non-essential travel, most of Victoria has the day off to head outside and enjoy the pre-Christmas snow.
For those who despise all things frosty or simply don’t wish to brave the icy roads, a cozy day in might be the order of the day.
Nevertheless, the rare foot or two of snow in the capital city has offered many a chance to snap some incredible photos and capture our little winter wonderland on film.
Without further ado, here are 25 photos/videos of Greater Victoria in the snow:
About 30cm so far in Royal Oak in #Saanich. Thanks to all those essential workers out there like @SaanichPolice and @SaanichFire and many @saanich others. Please be safe as you work to keep us safe. #yyj pic.twitter.com/5lQldvfC7z
