Vancouver’s weather has been sufficiently bad this winter to have made the national news a few times, and if you follow any local online voices, you may be growing tired of our whining about the weather. Well, I’m going to publish a few pictures of the carnage anyhow.
The problem is that the city isn’t really set up for snow, particularly multiple feet of snow that stays on the ground for weeks, particularly where it’s on narrow local streets with nowhere for snowplows (if we had any) to put it. So there are cars that have been buried since sometime in the middle of December.
Of course, people are out shoveling, day after day after day.
Some people have special snow-shoveling issues.
And today on January fourth, as the dusk settled, the situation was not improving.
The theory says I’m driving my boy to his first school session of the new year starting at 8:30 tomorrow. I wonder.
