Got Candles?

Environment Canada is predicting a blizzard tonight. And I don't mean a "ooh, it's snowing kinda almost hard" Vancouver-style "blizzard", but an actual 90 Km/h winds, up to 20 cm of new snow, blowing snow, -20 °C blizzard. Vancouver is not set up for this kind of thing. This is an unusual city in that a great deal of the electrical infrastructure, even downtown, is done with suspended wires and telephone poles. High-wind plus sub-zero temperatures plus snow plus above-ground electrical wiring - you do the math.

Neat day

It is as dark and stormy today. I love this weather. I know I am a freak. It was very windy as I was walking to work and it started raining along the way. It has been raining incessantly since I got here and because of it I feel great today.

I swear, I must have some mutant reverse form of seasonal affected disorder. I get miserable when the sun comes out, but the darker and rainier it gets the better I feel. I live for winter when it never stops raining and the sun is only up for six hours a day.

Yeah, I belong in Vancouver.
