Greetings from snowy Coquitlam. It's still snowing (or is that again...I've lost track. We're up to about 30" (a larger bunch of centimetres) in my backyard now.)
Like Matt alludes to, it's not the snow that bothers us, it's the having to go about daily life in an area where a single snowfall can totally blow the municipal budget and folks refuse to acknowledge the driving conditions are any different than normal.
Who's complaining? I love the snow! The only time I complain is when it rains for 2-3 weeks straight.
The rain is the main reason we moved out of there. That and the hour and a half commute each way from Coquitlam. I hear the traffic is better, but the rain doesn't sounds like it's lightened up at all!
If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

Hello from the Island! If you are ever heading over here, give me a shout.
Snowing again in Nanaimo. And it's not the snow, it the not clearing it that's the problem. In the 3+ weeks since it started snowing every day or 2 our road has been plowed twice. Lots of other places haven't been plowed at all. Last week,trying to see a client who was way overdue for a postpartum visit, I was stuck in a snow bank for 2 hours - forced there by someone who doesn't know how to drive in the snow. I had a shovel with me but it took a local with a small bobcat to get me out.
Wish I had the money for a trip to Mexico this year!
I guess I'll have to subscribe soon if I want to look at the galleries.
Sly, I was stuck last night. I was forced to turn around because the path was blocked by a delivery truck. Got stuck on some ice while halfway turned around. I really appreciated the people in the apartment building, staring through their blinds at me while I struggled to get my car moving. Nothing like being watched, while annoyed.
Well I looked out the window this morning and SNOW again in Vancouver. One of the reasons I move out here from ALTA was to avoid the white hell. 8:00 pm Stlll snowing. (I'm glad I splurged on a macro kit gives me something to shoot at) I think we are setting a few snow fall records this year. Welcome to APUG. You can tell the younger generation " Ya I lived through the snow storm from 2008 until 2009. !! "
