ok i dont know what the hell you guys were seeing. I left Surrey at 630 am and it didnt now at all my entire way to Chilliwack and the main roads were clear except in the 'wack where they were slushy with only tracks to follow but thats easy to drive in  ::)

water is really nice though  ;D

I only saw 1 car in the ditch on hwy 1(east bound) between 200th and Chilliwack as well so im not sure where these cars were  ??? saw 3 in the ditch on my way home however and a spot where one had been pulled out earlier (west bound hwy 1)

I think a few of you were exaggerating so people would stay home. It didnt work !!! there was quite a few guys out there

Chilliwack River's steelhead broodstock capturing program starts on Monday. Here's a brief overview of what it is all about for those who are unfamiliar with the program.

Hey Hook

 Maple Ridge-Mission was sketchy at 5:45 as was the roads from Mission-Abbotsford. The #1 was not too bad but there was more then 1 car in the ditch. Lickman Rd was also not plowed so that was a slow go and yes we did have snow tires on.

As for guys on the river, I dont know were you where fishing but we hardly saw anybody all day which was really nice. Even in the afternoon we went down to some of the more popular places and still nobody around.

A bit of snow out here over night, roads will be very slippery.  Supposed to snow more today as well... if you're coming out be careful. :)

Drove to langley, only to find out no one else could make it. Mt Lehman was the worse, Chilliwack wasnt as bad. Saw two 4x4 and a semi flipped between 630 and 7. Time to go fishing.

Heading out tomorrow without snow tires or four wheel drive. How bad is this idea? I'm sure the lower river roads will be cleared...confirm/deny?

Well lets see theres a snowfall warning in effect for the Fraser Valley calling for 10-15 additional cm from what felll on the weeekend and earlier today. With there being dozens and dozens of abandoned vehicles on the freeway in ditches and upside down you can be the judge.....

Dress warmly as you also may have a NE wind to deal with too.
