Looks like all of Canada is having a white Christmas this year . According to this BBC article it’s the first time since 1971.

Beautiful. One of my favorite cities. How common is it that Vancouver gets covered in snow like this?

So far it seems pretty similar to what happened last year, but as a rule Vancouver doesn't get a lot of snow on a normal winter. We had gone through a much milder than normal decade with hardly any snow at all in Vancouver, but we might be returning to more old fashioned winters. They even got snow in Las Vegas last week!!!

What I love about Vancouver is simple. You can actually breathe in Vancouver. When I first arrived I couldnt believe how clean the air was. Id never smelled air like that. In Vancouver the pace is slow. I feel if I lived there, I'd be a lot more productive. And calm.

Great photos! I wanted to see whether Vancouver was getting a good amount of snow this winter and fortunately it IS! Only sixteen more days to get there and I hope January brings much more snow!

Thanks!

This winter is the most that we are getting lots of snow since I moved here eleven years ago. it's again snowing now and my front stair has accumulated about over a foot of snow. Perhaps I will take some shots later.

For the meantime, here are pics of Davie street I took yesterday....

do they plow the roads. They look very clean without snow on them. In Seattle area the roads are still very bad

Yes, they plow and put salt on most streets in downtown area and the main streets on the rest of the city but not on the residential areas.
