iN VIDEO: Snow storm has Lower Mainland drivers slip sliding away, again
Lower Mainlanders are trudging through the snow again after more than 20 centimetres fell in the region last night.
The winter storm is impacting drivers in a big way, with some of those embarrassing moments caught on social media.
A winter storm less than a month ago caused hours-long delays across the region, affecting commuters in several cities like Richmond, Vancouver and Burnaby.
Aston Martins and city busses alike are having a tough time between yesterday evening and this morning, Dec. 20.

Others are finding ways to get by without their vehicles, like one person who brought out their skis and another still relying on their bicycle despite the storm.
Police in the area have been watching for drivers that fail to brush snow off their vehicles before taking to the roads, like Richmond RCMP. The detachment's Road Safety Unit stopped more than 100 vehicles in just three hours to have drivers remove the snow, according to a social media post.

The Lower Mainland isn't the only B.C. region struggling in the snow today.
A vehicle incident blocked part of the Coquihalla between Merritt and Hope this morning. DriveBC expects major delays on the highway, but there's no word on when it will reopen.
Another 10 to 15 centimetres of snow is expected on high elevation passes from the Lower Mainland and the Okanagan today.
Meanwhile, flights from Kelowna and Kamloops to YVR have been cancelled this morning after Vancouver International Airport suspended all flights for the day.
