Heavy Weather

In the past 48 hours in the GVRD we’ve experienced everything quite heavy in weather. Heavy fog, heavy mist, heavy dew, heavy chill, and I’m sure everything in between. What starts out as a heavily overcast day clears to provide a bright and vibrant sun heavy in joy.

The air is crisp as heavier jackets emerge alongside scarves and gloves. The sad thing I see are the people who are still in heavy denial of the weather, driving still as if it were summer. Especially with October being Zero Crash Month as previously posted about by Rebecca, the weather combined with pure stupidity lately has certainly not helped this campaign. You would think awareness would at least be increased slightly.

In the span of 48 hours I’ve seen about 6 serious accidents involving vehicles that needed to be towed away and let’s not count the numerous “minor” accidents. Just because the sun is shining doesn’t mean the ground is dry. Just because you have fancy fog lights on your car and you can see that other person doesn’t mean they can see you. I’d hate to see when the first bit of snow comes.

Please Vancouverites! Be cautious and drive safe.
