The one thing you will not hear around here are the cries of “Sowmageddon, and Snowpocalypse,” mixed in with “Climate Change,” and “Natural Disaster.” Not even the electric power has flickered, as the silent storm rages relentlessly outside. I measured it, I got 21cm over night. People are out and about, and even driving in it, as if nothing has happened; a stark contrast to my days of living down in the Lower Mainland. I must say, we were pretty pampered while living down there as far as weather goes in Vancouver. But up here, this is normal, and brings with it a sense of peace and quiet that only can be seen outside of the major populated areas–it is both satisfying and pretty, and very normal.
The weather reports say that this storm will only be with us for a few more hours, then as the temperature warms up, and all this will melt away, brining with it rain by Sunday. But the funny thing about weather, it changes, and Mother Nature never lets out her secrets all the time. (Praise nature)
For me, this is a “stay at home” day, as I do not like driving in this. I have a small car now, and although it has been said that it does really well in the snow, I will forgo the driving in it. Today is a good day to catch up on all those things that need to be done indoors. With warmer weather on the way, I will wait until then, since this is after all, the weekend.
