Vancouverites get creative during snowy long weekend (PHOTOS)

Tortoros and ducks and sculptures, oh my!

Snow is still expected to fall today, but will soon be followed by rain. To mark the moment the city got blanketed by the white stuff, we've collected some of our photos and videos of people being creative out in the snow.

Many went with some riff on classic snowmen, with the three spheres and a face:

While most of the wildlife is taking it easy with the snow around, snow animals popped up all over the city.
