Say what you will about how the Pacific Northwest isn't equipped to deal with snow in winter, the fact of the matter is that once it's done and the skies have cleared, what's left generally looks a lot better than the usual dreary puddles. For me, a winter without snow isn't much of a winter at all, and more like early November but several months long. When snow's around, it makes things around it seem just a little bit brighter.
After the first series of snowfalls last weekend, I took this shot looking along Victoria Street in New Westminster. Looks a lot brighter than what we'd have got after a rain to me.
