One thing I think I'm going to miss here in New West is a winter that reliably includes snow. Sure, I know it does come down every once in a while in the Lower Mainland, but never to the degree that's ordinary in Ontario - and an ordinary Ontario snowfall would shut down Vancouver, since the city's just not equipped to deal with it any more than Toronto is equipped to deal with tsunamis.
A heavy winter storm hit Peterborough in February 2005, and I was around to take pictures. It was a thing of beauty, in its way.
