Winter is Here!

Winter arrived with a vengeance in Squamish last night. When we went to bed we could see stars, and when we woke up, there was at least 20 cm of new snow outside. It was beautiful, but the shovelling was not! The forecast is for heavy precipitation all week, but most of it will come in the form of rain at out elevation. Therefore, this winter wonderland will not last, but Whistler Blackcomb will be getting major snow in the alpine as the temperatures are supposed to hold at just above freezing on the valley floor. I'm not sure what happened in Vancouver overnight, but it's a mess up here. Luckily, we'll be getting our new snow tires installed tomorrow...
