Yesterday saw an enormous amount of snowfall. Listening to the radio reports of highway mayhem (as happens on a Friday evening when the folks from the Lower Mainland decide that bald summer tires will do just fine in a blizzard just this once, and since they are important and in a hurry to get to the slopes, the double solid line on the blind curve doesn't apply to them) and the collapse of the BC Place stadium roof, we snuggled up safe and cosy by the fire and thought how tremendously thankful we are to live here.

In the morning though, comes the magic.
