I believe spending that week in San Diego has affected my perception of how long winters should be. Having enjoyed a week of sun and warm temperatures, I’ve really noticed how cold it is in Vancouver in comparison. I stepped outside today and while it was almost 10 degrees Celsius, I still thought it was a bit cool. I then thought to myself that it shouldn’t be this cold and that it should get warmer soon. I realized it was still February and that in Vancouver terms, it wouldn’t really get warm until May. That thought made me a bit sad.
