Hope had its first significant snowfall overnight and into Friday morning (Dec. 27), and that meant a bit of chaos on the roads and highways.
A gravel truck overturned on Highway 1 eastbound near Flood-Hope Road during the early morning commute, but was cleared by about 8 a.m.
Snowplows and people with shovels have been busy through the morning keeping the streets and sidewalks clean, as the snow continues to come down.
Sidewalk clearing underway downtown Hope. It’s still snowing big fluffy flakes here this morning. Highway 1 has slushy sections. #hopebc @BlackPressMedia @HopeStandard #chilliwack #bcroads pic.twitter.com/w9GxXkNhU8— Jessica Peters (@CHWKcommunity) December 27, 2019
While the rest of the Fraser Valley experienced scattered flurries and light snow overnight, Hope is expected to accumulate at least two centimetres, according to Environment Canada.
The snow is expected to ease off by this afternoon, but snow mixed with rain in the forecast for Saturday morning.
