Checking out the Coquihalla via the internet

Rebecca blogged about many of the very cool webcams around Vancouver [mbv] the other day. This isn’t about one of those, this is about the BC Provincial Government’s own webcams, specifically the ones that let us Vancouverites take a look at the weather on the Coquihalla before venturing into the interior of the province.

I had planned a trip to Kelowna last week but delayed it because of sleet and snow, and checking the province’s highway site [pbc] I see that sadly it’s not looking good for yet another week. That might mean that I’ll either have to fly or forget adventuring inland until after the winter.

Living in Vancouver it’s easy to forget that the rest of Canada gets snow. Heck two hours in a car and you get this sort of weather. We should be grateful that on our worst days we don’t have to deal with anything like this level of slush.
