It seems The Dear Sweet Husband made the right call when he replaced our tires a few months ago. At the time we hotly debated going all in on a new set of winter tires, or the riskier alternative, a set of all-seasons. Against my wishes, TDSH went for the all-seasons...and as much as it pains me to say it, he was right. The much-hyped snowy winter we were promised never materialized this year.
The upside of a mild winter is that it's allowed us to get out and enjoy the outdoors almost as much as we do during the warmer seasons. Here's a quick look at some of the places we've ventured in the past month...Torontonians, eat your heart out, 'cause this is what winter looks like on the west coast:
Lighthouse Park, West Vancouver
Lynne Creek, North Vancouver
Centennial Beach, Tsawwassen
Eagle viewing, Brackendale
Snowshoeing, Cypress (or maybe Seymour) Mountain
And, yes, I'm fully aware that by flaunting our snow-free status, I have doomed us all to an epic snowstorm in the next few weeks.
