It’s quickly disappearing

February 13, 2019


It’s all over too darn quickly. One minute we’re sitting in a restaurant in Richmond having driven there in the almost sunshine and the next we’re leaving the restaurant in blizzard like conditions.

We sail across the Straits of Georgia while seeing nothing of either the mainland or Vancouver Island. We arrive on the island, dig out the car and creep our way back home.

The next minute the snow slithers off the roof or slowly disappears one drip at a time. There’s little time to contemplate the beauty of the scene and take in this momentary interruption to our normal routines. Occasionally the sun pokes out of the bruised clouds and the light is incredible.

Important to enjoy for the little time it’s here.

    Tony:
    I’m told there is three feet of the white stuff in Ladysmith. I had snow issues while driving through four states. Arizona, Utah and Nevada and California. I’ve just settled in to a campground on the beach in Gold Beach, Oregon. It’s blowing force 5, raining like hell and I’m loving it but I am thinking longingly of the desert.

    Glad to hear that Ontarians are not the only ones suffering the cold and shovelling non-stop!

    Jal PS Rick is still wearing shorts. PPS Lots to report probably on the weekend. Frustrating not having things fall into place…. ________________________________
