White days in Vancouver

Snow day in Vancouver

That was the scene this afternoon, and it looks like we’re getting more tonight before it turns to slush and rain by Monday.

The funny thing is the next picture that Rebecca took while we were back in Iowa about a week ago.

I’m sorry, Vancouver. Looks like we brought it with us.

  1. it was pretty freaky. i was on great northern way, tried to turn right – what a mess! took me 15 minutes to get the 50 yards back onto great northern way, inch by inch. it’s as if there was icy soap on the roads. then it looked like everything was fine and all of a sudden i lost complete control of the car, did 3/4 of a donut, and finally ended up facing the wrong way – but at least against the curb. looked like another car might smash into us so we got the hell out of the car. somehow with all of this, the keys got left in the locked car. 2 hours later, when my husband came to get the car, it was as if nothing had happened. yup, that’s vancouver.

  2. oops the post above was really from me, marian, in calgary!
