Happy summer, it snowed in British Columbia this weekend!


Summer this year has been a little bit of a kick in the pants for a lot of Canada. It’s gone from pouring rain to cold to smoking hot to… snow. In August. Our home and native land, we’re a little miffed. It snowed in British Columbia this weekend, and nope. Not even in the Arctic.

While Vancouver’s had a decent summer so far, other parts of the province got the short end of the weather stick this weekend. Northern British Columbia saw significant snowfall early Sunday. Check out this timelapse of a Steamboat Hill road, and prepare to want to cry at the sight of so much snow before winter.

According to the Weather Network, a life-ruining weather system from the Prairies dropped 30 cm (yep!) of snow in BC. Parts of the Rockies got a nice dump too- sorry weekend hikers.

Visibility went to absolute trash, and driving conditions were abysmal. Yeah, this was a real snowfall, not a piddly omg-snow-in-summer 2cm.

Just when you’re starting to get your tan on, Canada’s here to remind you that it’s ready and willing to crash your party at any time. Vancouver’s probably safe with an average August snowfall of 0cm, but we’re putting emphasis on “probably.”
