Just what it promised I found out a couple of hours later...
I mean, really? Snow on the day before spring in Vancouver??
This is supposed to be Lotus Land, people!
Everyone out of the pool!
The morning after I arrived back at my home on the east coast dawned clear and bright as well, bringing with it another promising view from my bedroom window. Ironically, I had wintered west in order to escape the frigid temperatures and snowbound months Maritimes winters are known for, only to find that the west experienced unusually cold temperatures this year while the east basked in (chilled) sunshine for most of the winter.
Thinking I'd go out for a walk to get re-acclimatized, I donned my jacket and scarf and was just about to head out the door when Pierre looked at me with a very puzzled expression on his face. "Have you been outside yet?" he asked. "No? Well, maybe you should check it out before you head off." He was right--it was 26 C!
Things are getting a little more back to normal around here, now that I've arrived. Temperatures going back to the low single digits with flurries in view. Seems wherever I go, I always take the weather with me.
