Maui jail: where British Columbians go when it starts to snow


Originally uploaded by Jeffery Simpson.

So snow has hit Vancouver [mbv], and we all know that nobody here can drive when a light dusting hits the roads so the only thing to do is to leave. That’s right as of Tuesday I’m taking off and going to Maui, because that’s where you go when you want to throw back a few drinks and live out your Grand Theft Auto dreams [mbv] on the open roads of Hawaii [mbh].

This continues a long tradition of our folk going to the sunny islands when things get too cold here. From Captain George Vancouver in 1794 [bih] to Gordon Campbell some years later, we’ve always been the sort of guests that make the Hawaiians say, “Holy shit I hope those pricks don’t come back again.” At least I’m not expecting someone is going to house swap me [clv].

Depending on whether or not I get sunstroke and pass out, and what sort of internet access my hotel room has, I might be blogging on Metroblogging Hawaii [mbh] during my time there. So please while I’m gone learn how to drive in the snow? This interior boy finds the snowy traffic slowness of Vancouver pretty shocking.
