Abbotsford Hydro lost a transformer Sunday which affected 5 customers. There were no reports of areas in Chilliwack losing power.
Unofficial reports are that 77cm fell Saturday through Sunday morning, plowing over any other record since weather records have been kept.
The last time Chilliwack had a record-setting snow day was November 19, 1996, when 67cm fell. That just squeezed out the previous record set February 14, 1923, with 66cm.
This latest snowfall likely threw a wrench
the City's snow removal budget.
