After a break of a couple of days, snow was falling in Castlegar on Dec. 22.

The brief respite had come after a record for December snow volume had been set.

The outlook ranged from a 70 per cent chance of snow on Saturday... to a 20 percent chance of precipitation on Christmas Day.

Some areas, including large portions of Robson, had yet to see the benefit of a snowplow as of Saturday evening.
