My First Vancouver Winter


My first Canadian winter arrived this week! It was late, but undeniable. Vancouver’s winter doesn’t compare to most other parts of Canada or even the world, but the snow came down for 2 days straight and that was plenty. And yes, even this is extreme by my standards because I live in Southern California. I saw the one thing I hoped for, because I knew I would not see it anyplace else: boats in the marina covered in snow!
