The snowstorms that hit B.C. Interior cities left many with cars that wouldn't start, deep snow to shovel and difficulty navigating the roadways. But forget about us, let's take a look at how Vancouver residents have been doing with the series of winter blasts on the south coast.

Vancouver doesn't usually get winter weather like the rest of Canada so that explains why some residents don't have shovels and resort to using odd items to clear a path.


The snow led to many blocked roadways, such as all these vehicles stuck on the Pattullo Bridge.


Follow @vancouver_official This is Pattullo Bridge yesterday ?? I am blaming the city of Surrey and New Westminister as they both were hoping the other city would clean it?? . This is my personal opinion but I would love to know what everyone else is thinking. . . . . . #vancouverbc #vancouverisawesome #vancouverfood #vancouver_canada #vancouver_ig #vancouverlife #vancouverofficial #surrey #mustbevancouver #vanlife #richmondbc #okanaganlifestyle #princegeorge #kamloops #vancouver #vancouverisland #kelownaliving #604eats #yvreats #victoriabc #vancouverbusiness #kelownanow #kelowna #victoria #toronto #vancitybuzz #surreybc #vernonbc #canada #winter

This video shows not only someone struggling to drive up a slippery slope but also features using umbrellas to protect themselves from the fluffy stuff.

The snow has brought out some altruism from strangers, such as this woman who made a daring dash to help out a stuck driver.

Sometimes, you need a little more than two hands pushing. That's why these commuters banded together to help get their stuck bus moving.

The bus above wasn't the only one to get stuck. Here's a few more that fell victim, leaving the commuters in the city with limited service.

Wondering why the roads are so bad for drivers? It could be due in part to the fact that even snowplows can't handle the conditions.

One person snapped a video of someone driving in the snow, with their vehicle absolutely covered in it.

Some people certainly don't mind the snow and are having some fun on the streets.


Even police officers couldn't help to get in on some snowy fun.
