Let It Snow In Vancouver



I am the happiest girl in the world right now. Literally. No one is happier than me right now. Sorry all.

I woke up this morning and heard that the city was not doing too good because it was snowing. I had heard before that since it never snows in Vancouver that when there is the slightest bit the city freaks out. People can’t go to work because they don’t know how to properly drive in the snow, businesses have to close down because no one has shovels to clear the parking lots, and lots of employees simply can’t get to their place of employment. Lots of busses have to be cancelled because once again, they can’t drive in the snow.

So when I woke up I was like “yeah okay I bet there’s nothing”. Then I looked outside and screeched a bit. THERE WAS ACTUAL SNOW! Not lots, but enough that I could see a bit of white on the buildings.

I was immediately wide awake and SO HAPPY.





I went for a walk and to the grocery store to pick something up. Everyone inside was freaking out over the snow, and there I was with the biggest smile on my face. The cashier asked me why I was so happy and I told her because of the snow. She started laughing and said no one is having anywhere near my reaction.

When I got home I went into my backyard to take some photos for this post and to show my mother in law the snow here.

It was so gorgeous! Although very wet and slippery. I was soaked by the time I got inside. No worries though!





In the last two hours the snow has become very thick and white, and there are flurries everywhere. I have been like a cat at a window. I keep trying to focus on something but keep finding myself wandering back to the window to look outside, smiling.

I have always loved snow but never the cold. Since moving to Vancouver though, I miss the snow, and even the cold, so much!

Just writing this post I have taken so many breaks to go watch the snow flakes get bigger and fluffier. I’m trying to take pictures to show you how thick and fluffy the snow is right now, but the pictures are not doing it justice at all. Let’s just say, they are perfect.

Let it snow in Vancouver!

  1. Wow I just assumed all of Canada were snow pros…didnt know Vancouver didn’t know how to deal! I only like snow if I don’t have to commute in it. Where I live it gets very icy because it often goes above freezing in the afternoons and then quickly drops below freezing in the evening making everything ice over. It’s the worst!

    1. When I lived in Ontario we had terrible winters. British Columbia is mostly desert, so it doesn’t really snow here except up in the mountains. So no one really knows how to handle it.
      I would hate how icy it gets where you are!
