It is a winter wonderland outside, seldom seen in Vancouver. It's -2C and has snowed about 15 cm and still snowing. Everything is white, neighbours have their Christmas lights shining. Took the dog for a walk and she comes back with a hundred dingle snowballs attached to her fine fur. Have to defrost her at the door before we let her loose in the house. There arn't many snowplows in this city and they can't even keep the main arteries clean. Everybody is scrambling at all the airports in Canada, due to cancelled and delayed flights, trying to get home for Christmas or someplace warm away from the snow.
