Chillin’ in Langley

We asked readers to show us what they encountered in their neighbourhoods during the recent snows.

The snow that fell in the Lower Mainland starting Sunday forced people to use skills common to residents in the rest of Canada.

Typically snow doesn’t stick around on the South Coast, thanks to lots of rain to wash it away. And typically, the Vancouver area gets an average of five centimetres of snow per day on days when it falls in February. Snow accumulations of 25 cm or more are rare.

So here’s a selection of photos from local residents and what they saw in their neighbourhoods when heavy snows hit Langley.
