The city is shutdown, please call again

It’s snowing out here in Burnaby, and this morning there was even snow downtown Vancouver. You know what that means? That means that the entire ballgame gets called on account of rain and everyone in Vancouver starts freaking out. The ballgame being Vancouver.

If we could close the city anytime white stuff hit the sidewalk we’d do it. Nobody in this town seems to know how to drive in the snow, despite the fact that a good number of us are Alberta transplants. Anyone east of the Rockies has to deal with driving in over three feet of snow, here an adventure.

If I were mayor I’d mandate everyone in the lower mainland take a Young Driver’s course on driving in snow, but since that’s unlikely to happen then I’m probably just going to keep my car parked and ride the Skytrain until the rain returns.
