I spent the past week in the Vancouver area. I was reminded again why so many people like to live there: the weather! I had left Toronto where it was -22 C plus a wind and landed in Vancouver where it was a balmy 12 C. Last Friday I took my mother to the White Rock beach for a picnic lunch! Yesterday I saw flowers growing in a garden. Admittedly they were pansies, but still -- flowers in January! Today I flew out of YVR where it was warm and sunny and landed at YYZ where the snow was flying and the air was cold. Why don't we all live in Vancouver?
