Cold Arctic Blast Plus Wind Warning Hits The Valley

Fraser Valley – Late November and it’s about time we had a taste of winter. The upside is that Environment Canada is not calling for any snow dump.

Just a whole lotta cold!

A reminder to bring your pets inside and before you start up you car, tap the hood to make sure there are no critters trying to stay warm on your car engine.
