Looks like we took the trailer cover off a week too early! Snow reached Victoria overnight. Not much, admittedly, but as this is such a balmy corner of the country even a few inches is enough to bring motoring chaos to the city.
I crawled in to work in an hour and a half, a journey that normally takes about 25 minutes. Many people couldn't make it because they're stuck on steep hills, and cars don't make for good bobsleds!
But times like this really bring out co-operation and understanding. Many folks were able to log into the network from home and carry on working. Meetings took place by email and phone. Anyone worried about the journey home was able to leave early. Life goes on.
Oh, and looks like the kids are now making their own model of Cypress Mountain out on the front lawn.
