They closed the school

Nearly all the schools in the whole lower mainland are closed today. "SNOW DAY"
They closed Langara 'until further notice'.
Yay! (even if it means we have to find a day down the road for a make-up class, whatever.)
Because of the unexpected break, I got to go for a walk this morning in the snow and took some pictures.
It's almost Post Card Perfect out there right now.





Frozen run off




The wooden benches outside the New Westminster Public Library





A beautiful snowy canopy





Snowy cedar





Snowy Willow





Snowy Crow Purch (or is that perch?)








And now I'm home with icy toes and frozen fingers and a nose as red as Rudolph's.

Oh, I just glanced outside now and the snow's starting to fall again.

ms_nerd you should head home now before it get worse (and the city closes the 'brow of the hill')

And now I really should crack open AfterEffects and pretend I know what to do for my final project.

Man, makes me wish I was home so very much! Not that it would be much better - yesterday, Sabu's place had no power for like 5 hours. O.o

But your pictures! It reminds me of how much I really do love snow, rare and freaky as it is here :D

Good luck with After Effects!! At least it's an Adobe program! That's what I keep telling myself when we try to use it, ahahah.

::hugs:: How did the two of you stay warm? 5 hours? Boo!
I hope the power doesn't go off again.

Didn't get to AfterEffects after all. Had to do some Flash/ActionScript work on the class group project.
(AE is really, really cool - if you know how to use it)

DId you have school today cornichon?
Is your school open tomorrow?

Hey you. Did your client make it to the office?
Did they really make you stay for a whole day?
Your bosses are poo-heads!
I hope you made it home in one piece sunshine!

Pretty! I'm rather glad we are not getting it very bad here though. Snow is lovely on tv and in postcards but it truly annoying when trying to commute and walk dogs:)

Oh man, snow is one of the funnest places to play with dogs!
Unless it's short and completely white. :o)

Oh dear, you have never met Portland "snow" have you? Wet, gloppy, sleety, slippery, wet, wet, wet.... We don't get that nice, dry, packed snow unless you want to go into the mountains around here. It is just like walking the dogs in slush, falling from the sky. Wet, muddy mess. Ick.

We live on the same coast. I know the variety of snows we can get.
Dogs + snow still = tonnes of fun to me.

Thanks sweetie! *smooch*

Thank you sweetie! Summer's my favourite season, but I feel like a kid again when there's this much snow around.
I'm looking forward to more of your gorgeous photos as the season settles in!
