You can blame the somewhat underwhelming snowfall accumulations on the thermometer.
Environment Canada Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says it was a very fine line between snow and rain.
He says snow fell where the mercury was at or below zero, but a messy mix of rain and snow fell in areas where the mercury was as little as a few tenths of a degree above freezing.
Proof of this is a temperature discrepancy of about a degree meant more on the mountain than downtown.
With the amount of moisture associated with the system, Coulson says had it been colder, it would have turned out to be a significant storm.
Coulson admits forecasters knew this one was going to be tough to call because of where temperatures were sitting.
Although we may have dodged a bullet this time, he says there's potential for additional storms over the next few weeks.
