They're also warning people who live close to rivers, creeks and culverts to be on the lookout for possible washouts. 

I'm not going to lie if I have to choose between rain or snow I'll choose snow everytime, because at the very least when it's snowing outside you don't need an umbrella. Plus snow doesn't cause floods like the one that hit Montreal last year
