Playing In The Snow

We got hit a with major dumping of snow over the weekend and that has created driving hell during morning rush hour today. Well, that’s what I heard anyway since I was still asleep during the morning rush. 😈

When I did get up to head to Fitness World for my morning workout, I got a taste of what the rat racers went through. It was pretty bad out there. It was especially bad in Richmond because they don’t salt their roads very well. The logic is Richmond is as flat as a pancake so you shouldn’t get stuck. Ya, right.

Sally is really enjoying the snow. I helped her made a snowman and we had a great time throwing snowballs at cars. I also got to test out the car’s traction control during the trip to lunch. It was pretty fun. But I doubt it’ll be fun for anyone heading home during rush hour tonight!

    4. John, you need a 4×4 like us Winnipeggers! 🙂

      Not to be mean but I must admit we in Montreal enjoyed your rare snowfall. Have to wonder if Vancouver is as slow to clear the sidewalks as our incompetent administration.

      Sally is delightful. Was this her first snowfall?

  2. woo, lots of snow there, i am feeling cold 😀

    nice pictures.

    1. Tushar says:

      Funny you say that, because Vancouver is actually considered one of the “warmer” places in Canada.

    2. Ben Pei says:

      Lol you’re right huh.. you can actually feel it looking at those pictures..

  3. Li Weng says:

    Looks quite amazing. It’s summer where I am so no snow for me! It just feels good not having to commute.

  4. Oh Wow! I wish it snowed where I live 🙁

    1. Ben Pei says:

      Same here.. ITs summer throughout for me..

  6. Mario says:

  7. I love the snow … as long as I’m close enough to my front door to run in and get warm when I need to 🙂

  8. Edgar says:

    Nice Pictures, Thanks for sharing that. I am glad I live in Anaheim Ca. we never get snow.

    1. I wouldn’t say NEVER!!! I always hear once or twice during the winter time how california gets a snowfall and the whole state gets shut down because of it hehehe

      No winter tires FTL

  9. jessylingmy says:

    Malaysia will not see this snow view!
    But do have sand, beach and hot sun.hehe…

  10. Melissa says:

    We just got freezing rain, sleet, hail, and a little snow. Isn’t everyone so jealous?! My kids were sledding on ice covered grass. They had a blast until the weather turned to all rain. That’s weather for you outside of Philadelphia!

  11. bob goh says:

    Fortunately, there is no snow in Wellington during winter, temperature hardly drop below zero centigrade. But the snow capped mountains are simple gorgeous!

  12. tv says:

    The ‘rat racers’, eh? 🙂

    Love the miniature snowman picture!

    1. John Chow says:

      I live on the fast track. 😛

  13. My favourite pic is the one with John and Sally with the snowman inside hehehe – cute

    Reminds of my first snow. I was just from my home land in the Philippines and came to Columbus OH in December ! Talk about a shock. The coldest temperature I had ever experienced was about 65 degrees F ! That was in a large drink cool once when I worked in the city. y husband says it always 90/90 where I am from. 90 percent humidity and 90 F.

  15. Love the snowman.

    And It’s been snowing here like crazy as well for at least two weeks now. We got 6 inches.

  16. Debasis says:

    Wish we had at least a little of such snowfalls here in India! 🙁

  17. I like to the snow weather in Canada..didn’t have the chance to experience it. So John, how cold was it? 0-10 Celsius?

    1. Well, I don’t really mind it. The only sucky thing is when it turns to ice. I almost slipped a few times.

    Awww how fortunate.. Happy family john

    Hello there,

    Lovely pictures of Sally in the snow. My son is 21 months he would love some snow to play in, but we don’t get too much now in Scotland. Maybe in January or February.

    I totally agree with you on the childcare issue – it’s vital for me to keep my children at home, five is old enough to go to school and be cared for by others. It’s sad that so many women do not have the choice.

    I am a student of Alex Jeffreys, part of a team of students that are learning from him, we all have blogs and are encouraged to look at professional bloggers blogs to get tips and such, its lovely to look at yours because as well as the business side you have the personal side too.

    Best wishes,

    Ruth Stewart

    Great pictures! I am originally from Chicago and I remember all that snow. I now live in Philadelphia and we don’t get that amount here.

    I love your site and blog. I was recommended to come by your site from my coach Alex Jeffreys. He told me that your site will blow my mind with all of your knowledge and help to other internet marketers and bloggers. I am just starting out on this journey and love the information. I signed up for your ebook and look forward to read that. Thanks again.

    Have a wonderful holiday season and peaceful new year.

  22. BusinessX says:

    In my neck of the woods we just got ice and sleet. They don’t write Christmas songs about that.

    1. Hmmm that gives me a great idea!!! lol

  23. Tyler Cruz says:

    She throws like her dad… haha JK.

    Looks like we got more snow than you but that’s a lot for Vancouver/Richmond. Starting to melt now though… slowly.

  24. Picasso says:

  25. Takumi86 says:

  26. Pheak Tol says:

    we had ice overnight, i was trying to rush to get to work, hurriedly ran out the front door, not seeing any ice on the steps to porch of my house and slipped, but with cat-like reflexes i was able to save myself from hitting my head on the steps, except my butt hurts now and my iphone is scratched on the back!! damnit not the iphone!!! (true story)

  27. I like the snow is cool.

  28. How I wish it would snow here down in LA 🙁 However, all hell would break loose when no one can get on the 10 freeway, lol.


  29. ihateher says:

    waaaaa!! i also want to play that snow!!

  30. Mominator says:

    I love the pic of you and Sally with the snowman inside on the tray. I’m pretty sure the day you had all that snow I was here in a tank top and shorts. LOL Didn’t feel like Christmas with the heat here in FL so it was nice to see alllll that white snow…beautiful.

  31. White Christmas, was awesome

  32. Nice…I can look out my window right now and see the same thing, although it’s night time, but I know it’s there…lurking, waiting to make me cold again…till we meet again pale, frosty demon of the ground.

  33. Atniz says:

    Looks like Sally really enjoy playing with snow. It looks so cold out there.

  34. I really wished that in our country, there would be atleast one 24h snowy climate in our tropical country. Snow is nice, i think.
