A Touch Of White

These photos were snapped in my Neighborhood (Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada) at about 8am (pacific time) on my smartphone.

A Crisp, chill, Sunny, day, delicately hilights our first, wee, smattering of snow.

So refreshing and invigorating, after weeks of overcast, dreary, rain-slicked days, and just in time for the holidays.

Depite the cold, the day brings with it such joy, elation…..

and jubilation!

The crunch of snow, under our feet

A Frosty, white blanket, over everything.

One household, even managed to muster enough snow (& mud) to build this charming character.

It can be a headache for commuters, I know, but it is lovely to behold.

Stay safe, warm and Happy everyone,



Dismal Day


Dismal day,

how dare you chase my sun away.

I’m made of sterner stuff,

I’ll shine on through the grey.

I dare not let you cast a pall

on my parade.

You’re nothing but a ruse,

a game, a masquerade

Victoria Day


This is the current view outside my window (4:25 pm PST May 20th 2013) In sunny British Columbia, Canada. It has been a mild, almost summer-like day. The Dogwood trees are in bloom, and life is wonderful.

In contrast…


this is a photograph taken by an MSN.CA correspondent somewhere in Newfoundland (on Canada’s eastern shore ) about ten hours ago.

YIKES, Talk about contrast! Those poor folks are buried under several feet of snow, apparently, well several inches at any rate.

This confirms a few fundamental things for me,  if there ever truly was any doubt.

1. Canada is a vast, diverse country.

2. The weather is a nutty, unpredictable element.

3. I am very glad to be living so close to the balmy and beautiful Pacific Ocean.

Sorry Newfoundland,  I’m really not trying to gloat about your inclement weather,  just marveling at how different a spring day can be.  I hope everyone is safe and keeping warm on our magnificent Atlantic coast.

Happy Victoria Day to all my fellow Canadians!
