one year in 90 seconds

For as much Canadians complain about the weather (namely winter), I cannot imagine living anywhere where the seasons did not change. Even now, on the West coast, it’s a mild, wet day with peaks of sun, temperatures around 8’C (46’F) and I can’t help thinking there should be a little bit of snow of the ground. Rain is the snow of the coast though. I know I could drive an hour north and get some snow, so that will have to do for now.

There is just something about winter I find very calming. Of course I can say that now, as I’m not in the middle of a deep freeze, digging my car out or attempting to navigate down the highway. But you know that feeling after the first snow fall when everything is quiet? I love that moment. Similar to driving in the rain, or walking on crisp leaves. Just divine.

This clip reminds me of my backyard in Smithers.

    Backyard in Smithers? Excellent!
    (sorry couldn’t resist)

  2. bah-da-dum-tish! (or however you spell that sound) ;)

  3. For as much as I enjoyed my time in Nunavut, I really missed the trees. We did get seasons there, but fall wasn’t the same.

  4. I can imagine, as fall is the best season (in my opinion), especially when you have some birch trees in the yard!

  5. That clip was hitting a little close to home, as it really is starting to feel like the years are passing that quickly.

  6. I definitely feel like time is speeding up. I’m not quite sure where the last year went – the fact that I lived in three different places is telling enough. I’m hoping for a slower 2010…wishful thinking. ;)
