Like most of North America, Victoria has been at the mercy of a large Arctic storm. Hopefully you are lucky enough to have the day off. Take the time to trace a snow angel, have a snowball fight, toboggan, or build an igloo. Middle aged men are getting trimmer waistlines as they are pulled away from the buffet of sweet treats and shoved outside into the frigid winds with a snow shovel in hand. Snowmen get a rare chance for a short and sweet life on the West Coast!
Our road crews are doing a great job at keeping the arterial routes clear and safe. We may not have a lot of trucks but they are certainly accomplishing a lot. I have yet to miss an appointment due to road conditions. Take your time and get there safely.
Snow storms are a rarity in Victoria. When it happens it is a pleasant novelty, an inconvenience for some, but we grin and take it. We know that sunny days are not far ahead. It won't be long until we have to mow the lawn, right?
I hope the white Christmas adds to everyone's enjoyment of the holidays. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. Peace and Prosperity for 2009!
