A Snowy Sunday
I'm sure most people aren't as crazy as we are about snow. I grew up with snowy winters and then spent 21 years in the tropics without snow. Here on southern Vancouver Island we get very little snow, but I'm always excited to see it, even though it kind of hampers regular life. The snow here is not like snow in northern BC and driving really is treacherous. (And people are not used to driving in snow and don't have proper tires.)
Church is cancelled today because of the snow. We had a leisurely breakfast, and my husband is out shoveling. Our son and his wife are walking from their home (about 25 minutes) for lunch - tortilla soup! My oldest daughter called all excited about the snow, and our youngest is thrilled, too.
