    who's actually ENJOYING the snow?

    so went out on a whim last night and decided to make my second trip south on the island in a day...took off at midnight - packed my truck full of ppl and headed to nanaimo to do some 4x4ing around the city. didn't get home until 6am, after spending a night out enjoying the weather that most see as a burden. spent a few hours down at the seawall downtown, and played in the snow in the playground down there - imagine 3 girls and a guy, full grown, frolicking on the swings and slides as it came down at 4am. the groundskeeper was amused and came and joined in on the fun for a bit - granted he was just a spectator he got a few good chuckles out of the escapades we had going down the slide, climbing the ladders and jungle gyms in just under a foot of snow, and more falling on us. anybody else get the chance to get out there and have fun? noticing a lot of snowmen pics, and seeing family's handiworks on the front yards as i drive thru town...and glad to see that not everyone is hatin this weather!

    No, this weather is total bullshit. Some of us have things to do and places to go.

    the neighbours did play a funny prank on one of their roommates last nite.

    he's been away in montreal for a week, and is not expecting snow. the others decided to shovel a 4 ft drift of snow into the front door, making it look like they were snowed in. so after he gets back they will have to shovel all the snow out again.

    and i have the shovel

    You guys are total pansies. Between this and the water I'm disgusted with Vancouver people. I couldn't believe all the goofs at Costco the other day returning cases of bottled water. It'll all be gone in a week and life will move on. Enjoy it because it's really just a novelty for this part of the province.

    I was a little hesitant about driving my car in the snow but it's TOO MUCH FUN. Rear Wheel Drive is the way to go! Everyone thinks I am some crazy maniac drifting around corners. Nuh uh! This is snow you are SUPPOSED to slide. I love it and I am making the most of it. Viva Snow!

    uh, yeah. right.

    i spent 25 years slogging thru this shit back east. our snow plow was a front end loader on an enclosed tractor. -25 was normal. -45 in the cold snaps. 4 to 5 ft of snow was a light winter.

    vancouver has no fucking clue what real winters are.

    Listen pal, I drive a fucking Corvette Z06. I can't get the thing out of my driveway. There are no buses where I live. To get around I'm trading foot massages to my girlfriend for use of her vehicle so that I might buy a loaf of bread and some toilet paper. That's not right, do you understand? It's just not right.

    In summary: eat my shorts.
