One of the first big snowfalls of the season hit the South Coast on Tuesday.

The quick blast of flurries caused traffic problems, school closures, airport delays and power outages — but aside from the mayhem, the snow also coated neighbourhoods for most of the morning.

Here are some of your photos and videos.
