Good morning, Kelowna. Hope you’re having a good start to the day, despite the snow and cold. Let’s warm up with some news.

1.) The snow is making the morning commute in the Central Okanagan just a bit more slick. Snow started to fall at around 6 a.m., and Environment Canada has predicted that there will be flurries throughout the day.

2.) Remember that wonderful visit from the Cambridges? Well, it cost Canada a mint. Was it worth it? We want to know what you think.

3.) Kelowna Rockets forward Dillon Dube and his Canadian junior teammates will play the U.S. for the gold medal at the world junior hockey championship.

4.) BC Hydro customers may not enjoy their next bill.

5.) A Kelowna based research team has investigated the potential reuse of municipal wastewater in urban applications. It’s not the most exciting topic, but it’s going to be really relevant research going forward.
