Well Vancouver weather is like CrossFit, constantly varied. I hope everyone enjoyed a little snow day! Did you get a chance to play in the snow with family or friends? Its so important at all ages to not to forget to play. When was the last time you threw a snowball or built a snowman, went sledding? Often the snow can be really inconvenient if you have to get to work, or have appts., but I think it’s Mother Nature just telling us to slow down a little and enjoy the peace and quiet from our usual busy days. I took the time to shovel some snow off sidewalks and the driveway with my dad. He was surprised how much snow had fallen and we walked down memory lane talking about how as kids we used to slide down the big juniper bush when it was covered in snow. He talked about all the really bad cars he drove around in and it didn’t matter if you slipped around because there weren’t many cars on the street like there is now. He remembers a winter when they got 4 feet of snow, I know I’ve seen pictures, but can you imagine!  My garden is a little confused now but well insulated by the snow from colder temps which is great, not sure what is going to survive but it sure looked beautiful. Hopefully this is the last of the big snow fall and it focuses itself on the mountains going forward!
