Those of you who live in other parts of Canada and perhaps many in the colder parts of the world will appreciate just how quickly our winter can come and go.
The picture above shows my front yard a week or so ago and today. The Christmas deer's antlers were the only thing sticking out of the snow. We had 4x4 vehicles stuck in our cul-de-sac and it was pretty ugly for Victoria. Then the temperature quickly went up to 10-12C and it started to rain. It took about 2 good days of rain to get rid of most of those deep snow banks, but it is good to see them go. The fast melt of a huge volume of snow did create some problems throughout the region, like flooding, roads washed away, etc. This round of winter is over and it was one of the longest lasting ones I have encountered since coming to Victoria 25 years ago.
