To be fair, this winter had been pleasant. Our warm, albeit rainy, January had continued into February. That is until, Family and Valentine’s Day weekend. After a few days of bitter cold (by my Lower Mainland standards) started to give way and we woke up to snow. And even though we had to shovel and running was a little slippery, it was fun and really pretty. And yeah, I’m glad it melted away a couple of days later. I wish the same for others still battling snow and cold.
