With all due respect to my fellow Canadians, snow and freezing cold in Vancouver can be a lot worse than the same phenomenon elsewhere in the Great White North. In deference to Unambiguously Ambidextrous, I’m afraid I have to whine a bit.
Yes, I know Winnipeg gets cold. But my proud prairie friends don’t have to drive their car up or down a 30 degree incline on a skating rink of a road without proper winter tires.
We should have just stayed at a hotel downtown last night after the office Xmas party. It took us 45 minutes to traverse the icy commute over Burrard and onto Broadway in our plucky Accura. It usually takes us 6 minutes or less.
Sooooooo many close calls. As we pulled into our underground parking lot, we looked at each other like we’d just survived a drive through a warzone. I couldn’t even sleep until 3:30 am, I was so jittery.
This better clear up soon. We’re just not equipped for this kind of weather.
