winter, part deux

I know I haven't been really good with blogging lately. I'm tired, very pregnant and all those other excuses. I have a couple of draft posts that are sitting there waiting for me to complete - one is about how winter hit us in Vancouver this year. Most of the Vancouver bloggers I know did at least one post about the amount of snow we got in Vancouver at Christmastime. It was insane.

What is more insane, is the amount of snow we're getting in Vancouver in March! This is just too memorable for me NOT to post! I think this is the first snowfall in Vancouver that I have witnessed in March since I moved here in 1995. I know that my family in Toronto and parts back east are laughing at my incredulity over snow in March - but March in Vancouver is the time of year where the cherry blossoms start to appear, and on those first few sunny weekends, the motorcyclists start to insure their bikes for the year. It's definitely not the time of year where our weather forecasters predict 5 to 15 cm of snow!
