Whaaat? It’s snowing in Vancouver?
Whaaat? Shut the front door! No, seriously it’s been snowing most of the day and while not a lot is sticking in our (downtown area) neck of the woods, it’s cold out thar!
Our fair city is not ready for this. It’s mayhem on the roads and with only one snowplough for the whole city…it’s a whole lot o’ trouble. Snow in Vancouver is as rare as a good hair day for Donald Trump. And while we’re on the subject…
Nevermind, I digress…
Let’s start again.
Is there a better way to start the Christmas season than with a snow day on a Pro-D day in Vancouver?
We were up before dawn and after confirming it wasn’t a mirage, we had a snowball fight on the balcony to get into the spirit of things. Then it was off to the playground to bring our little snowman friend back to life.
It has been two years since we’ve seen him and my, how he’s grown. It helped that we had quite a few centimetres of the white stuff to build our snow boy.
Do you want to know what else is amazing about today?
I’m writing a blog post for Christmas. And it’s a giveaway! Don’t spill your hot rum toddy all over yourself, mama. Could you just contain that excitement a little?
Let’s get to it. We want to go back out to play in the snow!
