Photographer's Note

Today and yesterday were the first days we've had snow in a long long time. I think we had snow only 1 other day the entire winter season - but thats the norm for us on the west coast of Canada.

So that's a total of 3 snow days since November, but again, thats what we usually have. And when it does snow everyone panics, it's as if Armageddon is about to be unleashed upon our souls from the heavens above!

The city of Vancouver is not equipped to deal with snow, even in small amounts - so its total chaos.
Power lines fall down, homes go without power for days, schools are closed...its a real mess - and its laughable to be honest.

Our family grew up in Eastern Canada where its the opposite, it snows alot and cities are well prepared.

I will never forget my very first winter experience when we moved to Vancouver. I was sitting in class, in grade 10, and students noticed snow falling outside.
EVERYONE got up from their seats and RAN to the window to watch the snow fall. I was literally the ONLY student left sitting in their seat!

I remember thinking...IS THIS FOR REAL? Oh yes it was!
Vancouverites freak out when there's something other than Rain falling from the sky!!

Hope you like this winter scene in Stanley Park taken Today. I just liked the atmosphere with the snow coming down and the way its white and grey.

Thanks for looking
