Not only is it frosty in Vancouver right now, its snowing.
I love how the snow makes everything seem different. New and fresh and clean somehow. And makes people seem more cheerful. Except the folks that have to drive in it, of course. Its not much fun slip sliding your way through an obstacle course of unpredictable obstacles.
British Columbia has to be one of the most diverse places on earth for scenery. There are so many mountains that its hard to keep track of the names of all the peaks. There is the Pacific Ocean for a backdrop; there is an incredible variety of landscapes, from rivers to rain forests. There is a peace here that seeps into your very soul, a sense of belonging to something bigger, and better.
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow and see how Mother Nature has transformed her world into something ephemeral.
