The Winter Storm of 2018

It came one day in late February: a west coast winter storm.

Transit was stuck, commutes were snarled, and the city awoke the next day to 25 centimetres of fresh, clean snow.

The storm came so quickly this great blue heron was frozen into this small patch of water, waiting for the ice to thaw.

Hearing the crunch of the snow underfoot is a wonderfully Canadian feeling, and one we don't often get here on the left coast. Childhood memories of hot chocolate and cinnamon toast, of skating and tobogganing...

All too quickly the snow disappeared. Spring is coming.
