It’s the second of December, there’s Christmas trees up everywhere you look (staring politically correctness in the face) and Metro Vancouver is covered in snow. When we were in Iowa last week we swore up and down, “no, it doesn’t snow like this at home.” We were wrong apparently.
Our snow was not only shaken from white wash buckets down the sky, it came shawling out of the ground and swam and drifted out of the arms and hands and bodies of the trees; snow grew overnight on the roofs of the houses like a pure and grandfather moss, minutely-ivied the walls and settled on the postman.

Yes, 6 cm of snow is a big deal to Left Coasters. It will soon be gone though, with temperatures creeping up to the double-digits tomorrow with accompanying rain but to savour this wintery blast a while longer, here are some beautiful shots by some of my Flickr contacts.
