Winter finally feels like it’s here, but so does global warming with the fact that the weather these days is just a mess.
I was just in Ontario for almost 2 weeks, visiting family & friends and working on some projects and while I was there we had a couple of days of rain. Not only was this rain strange to begin with, but we actually got more rain in 2 days than we normally get in a month. There were little lakes on people’s lawns, and the town river was overflowing significantly.
Following this, I flew back to Vancouver, and I am greeted with a couple of feet of snow! For Vancouver, this is extremely unusual. In the winter, Vancouver just rains, lots of rain and gray skies, but it never really snows in the city. Having this much basically shut down the city for a few couple days.
When it snows in Vancouver, the city is unprepared to deal with it. The roads don’t get cleaned very fast, no one knows how to drive, things you don’t think about when you are from Ontario and everyone is used to lots of snow.
Of course, this is happening as Australia is basically on fire, and it really makes you think about the situation we are in. That could be a whole other post, but for now, just remember what’s going on in the world.
If you have snow, be sure to go enjoy it and make some snow angels or snowmen and go skiing.
Until next time, always be creating.
