Yeah, the weather is colder than we are used to up here in the Vancouver area. We like our sunny warm summers and rain for the other three seasons. This winter blast has been usual and a bit chilly.
I like the nip in the air and the briskness of each breath. It reminds me of my youth when I lived in Edmonton. This winter doesn’t feel like the “wet cold” that we are used to. It’s a bit sharper and you can feel it on your face. I enjoy this sort of winter.
I can appreciate the -14 and -20 with windchill because I know that inside my home I can warm up after. Sitting on the couch with a fire going while I take in the view of a slightly grey sky takes me back.
I don’t want to move back to the frozen tundra of central Canada mind you. I’ll take these little snippets of winter so that I can enjoy the summer equally as much.
