Not-so Perfect Vancouver Weekend

Unusual Vancouver WeatherIt was bound to happen. After I gushed about the amazing weather last weekend, the weather gods have decided to punish me for my glee.

It’s snowing out right now, and more is forecast for this weekend. Snowing! In Vancouver! In April!

Of course, I have lots of weather-dependent events planned for this weekend. Saturday is Bike the Blossoms, a 1st annual event that celebrates the cherry blossoms, biking, and slow food. It should be wonderful (if it’s not still snowing). Sunday is the Sun Run, which normally isn’t ironically named. I’m still looking forward to the run. They have more than 55,000 people registered to run, but if it snows I bet half stay home instead.

I guess if the weather is really horrible, I can always play video games all weekend. We have a rocking game of online Diplomacy going right now. It’s surprisingly fun.

I think the snow has stopped. I can bike home safely.

  1. Snowy days
    The snow hit Manitoba last night. This morning was snow, ice pellets, then turning to rain as I finally made it to work. I am hoping it is gone by end of day. It will however stand in for a warm spring rain and wash away the dirt and grime left after the snow melted. We have not had a spring rain yet. By the weekend everything should be turning green and look way more springlike. Would love to see the cherry blossoms. Hopefully the weather will reamin above zero so that they don’t freeze. I hope to start riding my bike to work next week.
