We’ve had a fair amount of snow today and I wanted to share this video with all of you that I took around four o’clock. As you can see, we’ve had large snowflakes and a good amount of wind.

  1. I didn’t really want to press like as I don’t like the snow. That is why I moved to the west coast of Canada where we experience some snow but usually melts the day after. For the last two years no snow at all. I still remember going way back since I left my hometown the snow and how I felt about it. All I can say it has been a long winter and a horrendous winter for some back east. feel for you and hope spring will come early for you

    • Ha! Well I appreciate the like for my post! You can still give the weather a thumbs down!

      I don’t like snow or the cold either. I grew up in the southern United States and the only ice there is in the freezers.

      I’ve heard that the Vancouver area is very beautiful and clean. I’d like to visit one day.

      If you aren’t familiar, we have a tradition here in the United States where a groundhog predicts whether we are getting an early spring or six more weeks of winter. He predicted six more weeks of winter this year. I hope he is wrong! In a comical fashion, a few years ago he also predicted six more weeks of winter and I guess people in the crowd were done with winter cause they started booing the announcement. The animal’s handler got very upset and told the crowd not to “boo” the groundhog as he is only the messenger. I couldn’t believe people were taking it so seriously.

      • Yes Vancouver is a beautiful city but in the 20 years I have lived here on the West Cost it has gotten busy but still clean. We are now seeing graffiti which we have not in recent years. I live in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island where we are spoiled with beaches and woodland walking areas. I also live in the warmest area in all of Canada and Canada generally is cold and even in the interior of British Columbia.
        I am familiar with the groundhog. I think on several occasions I think he was wrong.

      • Yes, I’m not surprised it has grown and with more tourism, begin to slide a little. I would attribute that more to visitors than the locals.

        I’m not familiar with the area you are speaking of but it sounds beautiful. I’m glad you enjoy living there!

        Yes, the groundhog is often wrong. It is just a fun tradition. I’m not even sure how it got started. The groundhog’s name is Punxsutawney Phil because they do the celebration in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
