The storm is coming to BC. Expect winter driving conditions. Slow and consistant is the key.

In the Lower Mainland of BC when the first snowflake falls we completely panic, forget how to drive and run into each other.
On the other hand, we are great drivers in the rain.

Jim, if you are driving up to get your trailer and tow it back, what route will you be taking to and from Chilliwack?

If you are coming north from Seattle on I-5 through the Blaine, WA border crossing, or north to the Sumas, WA crossing you should be fine. The closer you are to the coast (I-5), the more likely you will encounter rain rather than snow.

The Sumas Prairie section of Highway 1 east of Chilliwack can be treacherous in blowing snow, but there's likely no reason you would go there if you are planning to retrace your route back to the USA and go home on I-5.

Jim and others, please disregard my previous post. I moved to the Island 30 years ago and my grasp of Fraser Valley geography has deteriorated. Part of the Sumas Prairie section of Highway 1 is west of Chilliwack, and is not a good place to be in blowing snow conditions. The Escape team will be a better source of weather and road information than me, and probably better than the weather services and media, too.

I think Jim is worried about the tractor/trailer that is carrying his Escape. If it makes you feel any better we had ours delivered during a May snowfall. The driver took his time when the conditions were bad and the seven day trip took eight days.

Hi: cpaharley2008... I think Tammy's instructions to the transport driver include the phrases "No heroics", "No Humpty Dumpty", and "Get it there safe"!!!
You'll have this Escape for a while...maybe... so what's an extra day or two now? Alf
