I am concerned. Most Vancouver locals have told me that the amount of rain Vancouver has received this year is much higher than anything they’ve seen before. The temperature is averaging around 10 degrees lately, but went up to 18 last week, and was around 14 or 15 for a while. Even for Vancouver, that is warm. The crocuses are already blooming, and it’s the end of January.

I am very concerned.

    I’m with you. As an avid winter weather lover, I remember being concerned for the first time in Grade 8, when I was outside in shirt sleeves in January at recess. That was an apparently “one off” event, at the time. The number of ludicrously low-snow winters, the amount of times the temperature hovers around zero for weeks on end… it’s disturbing.

    And yet most people don’t notice/care. That’s even more disturbing.

      If you love the winter… here’s some news for you as well…

      It’s almost as if this world is going to turn into another Venus.
