Cowichan Valley Shakes Off Snow and Gets Back to Business

The Cowichan Valley continues to dig out driveways, shovel walkways, and clear roads after waking up to deep snow on Tuesday morning.

Winter driving conditions are reported on highways, and municipal work crews continue to plough side streets and rural roads.

Many businesses, recreation centres and services simply shut down on Tuesday because it was too dangerous for staff to make it in, and BC Transit suspended service in the Cowichan Valley because of poor road conditions.

Local residents and businesses are reminded that they are responsible for clearing snow and ice from sidewalks that border their property.

The shoveled snow must be kept on your own property and not pushed out onto the street.
