Ice storm makes for a slippery Halloween

Rain and snow falling in freezing and almost freezing temperatures made for some pretty slick roads and sidewalks.

These blueberries growing in Horsefly were theatrically encapsulated in ice when freezing rain and snow descended on Williams Lake area on Halloween.

The roads, and sidewalks in Williams Lake were so slick by Thursday morning that school buses were cancelled. Many people had to spend  extra time removing thick layers of ice from their vehicles.

The haunted house on Ninth Avenue hosted by the Metis Association also had to be cancelled at the last minute due to the freezing conditions.

The city also issued notices for residents to take extra precautions as they struggled to clean up the streets and sidewalks.

Don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour Saturday night as Daylight Savings Time ends.
