It wasn't that much snow, but cold and ice caused some traffic chaos around Langley on Monday morning during the early commute.
A stretch of 208th Street in Langley City was closed for at least half an hour starting at 8 a.m. due to black ice on a steep hill.
The stretch between 46th and 48th Avenues was shut down after it became too slick for cars, said City administrator Francis Cheung.
"The weather conditions changed, and it got quite slippery," said Cheung.
Traffic was diverted, largely to 200th Street, which slowed down and remained congested until after 9 a.m. with all the extra rush hour vehicles.
A sand and salt truck was sent by the City and cleared the road again after a short closure.
"It was just that isolated area," said Cheung.
There may have been some other isolated areas with issues, but not on main roads.
Typically, in a minor snowfall like the one Sunday night and Monday morning, there wouldn't be any closed roads.
Langley Township did not have any road closures, although operations manager Terry Veer said the local community seems to have had slightly better weather than Vancouver.
"Vancouver got freezing rain, and we got those little ice pellets," Veer said.
The Township had its trucks out spreading brine all weekend, due to low temperatures, which left it fairly well prepared for the Sunday night and Monday morning conditions. Veer said there will be crews spreading brine on roads as the cold snow and drizzle continues.
"We'll keep people out through the night," said Veer.
For the rest of the week, Environment Canada is predicting a mix of cloudy and clear weather, but with no more snow.
