After weeks of rain, temperatures well above zero, and lots of fog, it got cold again this week in the greater Vancouver area. It’s currently zero degrees Celsius outside and my apartment feels chilly. Sometimes you can forget it’s winter when you live in Vancouver. I’m not sure if you can say the same in, let’s say Winnipeg, where it’s around -20 right now.
Along with the milder temperatures, I can also see that winter is retreating ever so slightly. The sun lingers just a bit longer during the late afternoon. Today for example, I was able to still see a hint of sun even at 5:30pm. We might even have a pleasant and sunny afternoon in about six months.
