I got out today to capture some snow pictures. It’s not too often we get a good dumping here in Vancouver, er, rather Surrey to be precise. This afternoon, the sky was a brilliant blue with barely a skiff of clouds. Fresh snow had fallen the night before making today truly gorgeous. Though, I don’t think any commuters would agree with me.
It’s been 10 years or so since the last time Surrey had a white Christmas. If my memory serves me correctly(sometimes it doesn’t), when I was a kid winter had guaranteed snow. It was usually cold enough for a few weeks a year to go pond skating. I hear the kids are doing that these last few days. Some people complain about he snow and the cold but I really appreciate having a “winter” during winter. There has been much rain in the last few years. I would rather deal with snow than cold rain any day. I thank the Snow Gods for this season. It looks like we will have a white Christmas this year!
