Dec. 12 2016. The snowy view in Peachland is pretty picturesque.

Good morning, Kelowna. Snow has blanketed the valley and we hope you stay safe as you embark on your commutes. Before that, however, here are a few items you may want to know about.

1.) Environment Canada is calling for a cold and grey  morning, with an appearance of the sun as time wears on. The temperature is expected to remain a biting -7 C.

2.) Did you watch the game? If not, you may not have heard the Rockets lost last night to the Lethbridge Hurricanes. It ended a four-game winning streak.

3.) Taxes. Expect to hear a lot about them this week because the city is set to present its budget on Thursday and there’s a 4.4 per cent increase expected.

4.) How do you envision this city? The Imagine Kelowna project has completed the first phase of public pulse-taking and in a year we should all get some insights into this city’s future.

5.) Looking beyond our borders, US president-elect Donald Trump seems to be continually shocking the world with his statements.On Sunday called a recent CIA assessment of Russian hacking “ridiculous” and says he’s not interested in getting daily intelligence briefings — an unprecedented public dismissal by a president-elect of the nation’s massive and sophisticated intelligence apparatus. Read all about it.
