Great pictures! Thanks for sharting them with us.

I´m surprised with this huge amount of snow in Vancouver.

The weather in Brazil is being influenced by the colder than normal water of pacific as well, resulting in heavy and continuos rain and low temperatures for this time of the year in many parts of Brazil (yesterday, some high parts of southern Brazil had frost and temperatures as low as 3° C).

Vancouver doesn't have so much of snow in winter, but mostly rain, right?

yes its usually rain - we might get a light snow fall but this mount of snow is like a once a decade kind of snow

now its melting and combined with rain causing flooding and roof cave ins etc as the snow gets heavier and wetter from the rain
