Snowball silliness

The nice thing about snow in Vancouver is that when it comes around, it’s treated like a novelty. Unlike out east where the white stuff loses its charm very quickly, our own snow tends to clear up pretty quick (at least away from the mountains, where we like it to be). Hence, perfectly normal adults get in touch with their inner child on days like today.

Walking (well, sliding) through the slush this afternoon, I saw three guys on three different corners practicing their snowball-throwing skills on poor defenseless fire hydrants and a brick wall (I’m not really sure what the guy hitting the brick wall was going for, actually. Not much skill required there).

Have fun while it lasts… and drive safe, y’all. Tomorrow morning’s going to be a bad day for paying deductibles on your cars..

    One thing I noticed all day was people taking pictures – mostly of other people in the snow, posing, pretending to throw snowballs. Saw that about 10 times from the Skytrain (riding to and from New West this morning)
