Did you venture out to work or school today?
If so, you were probably met with a rather difficult, if not impossible commute. While the Ministry of Transportation has advised drivers to stay off the roads, TransLink has stated its customers ought to stay home, too.
Nevertheless, a number of locals braved the elements, and have shared their 'snowpocolypse' photos and videos on social media. Earlier this morning, a video was shared on Twitter of a group of people trying to push a bus up a hill. Now, @Banforeignoen1 has tweeted an image of 20 buses stuck on Granille Street and the Granville Street Bridge headed south bound. The poster advises, "Take the train if you can, it'll be a while."
More snow adventures... here's a close call on Parker in Burnaby. I saw this pickup barrelling down the road, blasting through the intersection and stepped aside well enough in advance, but still. #bcstorm #vancouversnowstorm2020 pic.twitter.com/PY3szbXpIR— Gian-Paolo Mendoza (@gpsmendoza) January 15, 2020
In 15 years, this is only the second time #WestGeorgiaSt has looked like this. #snow coming down sideways and the road is covered.— Ryan Voutilainen (@RyanVoutilainen) January 15, 2020
Stay home if you can unless you are properly equipped.#BCStorm #vancouversnowstorm2020 #YVRwx #BCSnow #BCwx #Hwy99 #vancouver pic.twitter.com/Ps1x0A79ZB
It's not a good day to be a bus driver in Vancouver...or a transit supervisor. Look at their teamwork though 🤝✊🏼 Thanks @TransLink for doing your best to get people to their destinations during #Snowmageddon2020 #WTRegion pic.twitter.com/Ua1jUJyVGo— Lee Hyndman (@OnTheLeeSide) January 15, 2020
If you can stay at home this morning, do it. The @TransLink 555 can’t even make it up Austin Avenue. Four had to be abandoned. Roads are in bad shape, SkyTrain is delayed too. pic.twitter.com/a9TindJgki— Nathan Pachal (@npachal) January 15, 2020
If you are wondering where all the buses are. pic.twitter.com/iGVxa2b4On— Mike McDonald (@BCMikeMcD) January 15, 2020
