Winter Storm Warning for British Columbia In August
It’s still August, right?
After receiving a winter storm and travel warning on Sunday, the residents of of Pink Mountain, B.C. woke up to approximately a foot and a half of snow this morning.
“It looks like Christmas, all that’s missing is the Christmas lights and the trees,” says Pink Mountain resident Melody Magaton.
It’s not uncommon for towns at higher elevations to receive snow in the summer months, but a dump this big is very unusual in northeastern British Columbia.
Pink Mountain is located on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, is a little over a half mile above sea level.
