In my opinion, if you don’t have to drive in the stuff, snow can pretty-up almost any landscape. It’s quite beautiful on campus now. Everything looks white and pristine. I took a walk around campus this evening and I love how the snow reflects back nearly every photon of light. It’s as if the number of streetlights has doubled and everything is bathed in light.
I am sure that anyone that has to commute to campus isn’t enjoying the snow as much. The parking lot next to my apartment is usually full on school days, but it’s been nearly empty in the last 48 hours.
I’ll be sure to enjoy the snow while it lasts, because in Vancouver, snow only stays on the ground for a little while before the rain comes back and washes it away.
