grizzly bears near Polaski's candy storeby
It’s already that time of year – snowboarding season! now i already went into why i wouldn’t be calling it ski season… apparently this is the earliest the local mountains (namely Cypress) have opened in several decades. that’s amazing, seeing as how they all closed early last year, i think in december, because there was just no snow. it’s part of the whole comfort-factor of living in vancouver. ocean, mountains, ahhh closure, comfy. and in the winter, the mountains are supposed to have white tops. last year it was a trip to look over at Grouse Mountain mid-January and see green grass :- I mean come on!
Just checking out some webcams from around the lower mainland and the island. looks like we’re supposed to get SNOW in a few weeks, although “snow” in the forecast means ‘freezing rain’ or maybe a flake or two for 10 mins then it turns to slush.
In my lifetime I’ve experienced maybe 2 completely white christmases. speaking of … stores have taken down their halloween displays and immediately put up the christmas ones — im getting stressed out already! only 45 shopping days to go!
