This is "a spring day" in Burnaby. It's been snowing all morning. Should this keep up, people will have to "scrape the global warming off their cars", as one eastern reader's mail to McLean's magazine stated a couple of weeks ago. I don't expect the snow to last - but at the moment it's building up. So far, spring has been quite a bit cooler than average here this year, but considering what the East has had to go through, I'll not complain.
