Snow day in Parksville
PARKSVILLE - A couple inches of snow means a snow day in Parksville.
On Sunday morning, people awoke to a thin layer of snow after an early morning snowfall. Parksville was lucky enough to receive the dusting of powder - word has it that Errginton, for instance, didn't get flake one.
While drivers were being cautious on the road and snow removal crews were working hard to ensure the main streets were clear on Sunday, winter enthusiasts will in the city's Community Park, sliding down the hill (and in some cases, rolling down the hill), playing with their pets, throwing snowballs and simply getting outside an enjoying this rare appearance.
Enjoy the snow while you can. According to Environment Canada, the mid-Island could receive more snow as temperatures fall to minus-six degrees Celsius overnight Sunday and into Monday morning - and possibly more all week. They also estimate there could be some rain - which could wipe out all of our snow if temperatures do not stay at freezing or below over the next seven days.
