Global warming... EXCEPT Vancouver BC. Snow x5 this winter. Have been looking forward to reasonable weather anyways to take my G.A.S. 4x5 out but NOOOOOOO. And would you say nice b&w snow shots..... but its pouring rain as I reach the front door. Take an umbrella you say...wind picks up considerably. ONE OF THESE DAYS.....Me and my one eyed mistress shall have time together.
