Winter has officially arrived, and in many ways, even Canadians weren't entirely prepared for it. Even in November, sudden snowfall came as a big surprise in several cities, including Edmonton, Alberta. Over the weekend, a massive Edmonton snow storm caused over 360 traffic accidents to be reported to the police.\nWhat began as a rain storm on November 8 eventually turned into a massive snow system that covered Edmonton in 15 centimetres of snow by November 10.\nDespite the fact that sand and salt were spread around problem areas, there was still an inordinate amount of car accidents.\nFrom 7 p.m. on November 8 to 5:30 p.m. on November 10, the Edmonton Police Service received 363 reports of traffic collisions across the city.\nOf those collisions, 46 were hit and runs. Injuries were reported in 23 collisions.\nThe majority of these accidents resulted in property damage, which was reported in 294 instances.\nThe city has put a seasonal parking ban in place in order to allow snow plows to clear the streets. Cars must be removed from marked areas during this time.\nEdmontonians had already been tweeting about how bad the traffic in the city can get, especially when the snow starts falling.\nThe massive dump of snow is everywhere in Edmonton. In Riverbend the roads are very slippery. Could we get some sand on the roads? @_TimCartmell @CityofEdmonton Yesterday the cars were almost sliding towards each other in slow motion.

There was one clear lane for me to drive in. Winter is here to stay. Please drive to the conditions of the roads #yeg @yegtraffic #yegtrafficI think R&B of the 90's is the best. @RaphaelSaadiq - Ask of You #AskOfYou pic.twitter.com/scoNADTp1y— Shadow Welch 🇨🇦🇧🇧🇩🇲 (@ShadowWelch) November 9, 2019\nAlberta also happened to be one of the coldest places on Earth over the weekend, making the sudden winter weather even harder to bear.\nWhen you can't clear the roads, a new compulsory driving exam in #Edmonton #yeg lol! https://t.co/PS1Dq6aDT3— #YEG Charlie Waffles 🏒🌽🧀⚾🍺 (@HuskOil) November 10, 2019\n#yegtraffic #yeg Shout out to these guys 🙌🏻❄️ @ctvedmonton @GlobalEdmonton pic.twitter.com/MVIGUOUQWj— Paisley Langston (@paislangston) November 9, 2019\nI ask you, humble people of Twitter, how in the holy fuck am I supposed to get my car out when someone has parked behind me, turning it into three rows of parking instead of the standard two? Snow turns people into morons. #yegtraffic pic.twitter.com/m1958GeGlr— Steve (@the_gunnshow) November 10, 2019\nDear everyone, this is NOT how to drive in snow. How did they even manage this? 🤦🏻♀️ #YEGtraffic pic.twitter.com/tg2qo5d7DK— Emily (aka Domino) Taylor (@pentapod) November 9, 2019\nDespite all of the snow, Edmonton is expected to start warming up, with Environment Canada reporting temperatures above zero for the rest of the week.\nDespite some flurries during the evening of November 11, the rest of the week is being reported as clear. It seems like Edmonton will get something of a reprieve from the winter weather.\nAt least, for now. Canadian winter is often unpredictable, and with November only beginning, more snow storms are probably on the way!\n*Cover photo used for illustrative purposes only.\nThere are stories everywhere.
