Hey keep the pictures comming. Makes me feel warm indoors on the computer. Well I almost didnt get a bus, the bus couldnt make it up a hill past me so I wont know on any morning if there will be one or not this week. I will have to slide 5 blocks blind earlier than ever to be sure to get the one I need. My job is of a nature tht no one else will get to work either if I dont. This happens to me during this busiest of weeks to let me know that normally there is hardly any stress in my life. Love the snow, hate the consequenses!!
East Vancouver Island

Snowfall warning for
East Vancouver Island issued
5 cm of snow is expected over metro Vancouver..The Fraser Valley and northern Vancouver Island tonight and Wednesday.
5 to 15 cm of snow is expected over Greater Victoria..The Southern Gulf Islands and East Vancouver Island.
This is a warning that significant snowfall is expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.
A developing low is forecast to approach the south coast tonight and move across Vancouver Island on Wednesday. The system will bring periods of snow to northern Vancouver Island..East Vancouver Island..Greater Victoria..Southern Gulf Islands and sections of the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley beginning this evening. Snowfall accumulations up to 5 cm are expected tonight with the bulk of the snow arriving on Wednesday. Snow will taper to a few flurries on Thursday morning.
Wind chill values for the eastern Fraser Valley will rise above minus 20 this morning as winds ease and the temperature rises slightly. Wind chill values below minus 20 will redevelop Wednesday as cold Arctic air over the British Columbia interior will redevelop through the valleys and inlets producing strong outflow winds and bitterly cold temperatures for the north and central coasts..Fraser Valley and Howe Sound.
I wonder if this will close the schools or not. If not tomorow perhaps on Thursday? It was pretty warm today after noon I think. I cant even smell the snow today, or feel it in the air, perhaps in an hour or so. If my bus comes it dosn't matter.
That top photo, Fitz, kinda looks like the guy has a pole sticking thru his shoulder :P the things you put your models tru for a decent shot...
BTW, to make everyone feel better, this was our back/front yard May 24th 2007 when we lived in Cochrane, AB just outside of Calgary...
Many years ago people from Calgary used to head out to Chocrane for the best ice cream on earth, or so we thought. Do you know if they still have that ice cream?
OOooooooh I remember that place! Doen'st it have like 200 flavours (ok, I might be overexaggerating) or something? We used to drive to Cochrane all the time
