An impromptu poll conducted on the Peace Arch News Facebook page indicated that Redwood Park was the best place to toboggan on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, and the hill was buzzing with activity Monday morning.
Nearly a foot of snow fell on some parts of the Peninsula Sunday evening and into early Monday. Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Surrey and White Rock, with another 5 to 10 cm expected tonight.
School was cancelled for Surrey and White Rock students Monday, and the white stuff prompted Surrey RCMP to deliver a message to residents before they hit the road.
“Brush off your windshields,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Elenore Sturko told Black Press Media. “Give yourself extra time, and expect there will be delays.”
Monday afternoon, the City of White Rock created a post to its website that explained city crews have been salting and clearing priority routes since Sunday.
White Rock priority routes include bus routes, emergency access routes and major roads.
