Milica saying "Sayonara, snow!" We landed in Vancouver, can't you tell? False Creek... ...frozen over

Those Vancouverites, so prepared for winter! (He's shovelling with a sign.) The palm trees must have been wondering what had happened.

The city came to a standstill, but Dad just plowed right ahead. The ferrys were going too.

Effective studying technique. We took the ferry to Manley beach. Where the water was not exactly warm. When you're small, your Dad doesn't have to dig that far down.
