It is now almost impossible to believe that March is less than a week away – although I saw someone carrying a bunch of daffodils on the street today our weather has been more fierce than flowery these last three days. Most of Canada is used to winter lingering, but it does take Vancouver locals by surprise. We woke up to some snow on Saturday morning and marvelled as it continued to fall, and fall, and fall.
The good news about all this is we get to make a snow man! My kids have been waiting (somewhat impatiently) for this chance since before Christmas.
Of course, no snow person is content without a snow community. (Isn’t it true that real happiness comes from collaboration?) So we went in search of snow friends…
Natural law: snow people are as varied and diverse as real people. Thank goodness.
At the end of the day my favourite view is still the one from my own front yard.
Here’s a little poem to end our snow play day:
“I made a little snowman, just like that.
But then the snow turned into rain and now my snowman’s flat!”
