It's December and the first snow of the winter has arrived on the Left Coast.
People in the rest of the nation watch their news portals and wonder why in the world people in Metro Vancouver get excited about a wee bit of snow; why bridges are closed and traffic snarls to a halt. The rest of the nations seems to know how act, and drive and walk, in the snow.
And every time snow arrives on the south coast a social media debate ensues about the proper use of umbrellas in the snow. Obviously we have too much time on our hands.
There's an amazing quiet that comes to the park after a snowfall.
Walking through Van Dusen Garden is a wonderful experience after a snowfall.
Especially when it only lasts a day or two.
