Day 2 - Vancouver Blizzard 2005

Chilled Vancouver commuters faced their second day of winter hell today,as
an additional 1 centimetre of the peculiar white stuff fell, bringing the
lower mainland to its knees and causing millions of dollars worth of damage
to the marijuana crops. Scientists suspect that the substance is some form
of frozen water particles and experts from Saskatchewan are being flown in.
With temperatures dipping to the almost but not quite near zero mark,
Vancouverites were warned to double insulate their lattes before venturing

Vancouver police recommended that people stay inside except for emergencies,
such as running out of espresso or biscotti to see them through Vancouver's
most terrible storm to date. The local Canadian Tire reported that they had
completely sold out of fur-lined sandals.

Drivers were cautioned to put their convertible tops up, and several have
been shocked to learn that their SUV's actually have four wheel drive,
although most have no idea how to use it.

Weary commuters faced soggy sushi, and the threat of frozen breast implants.
Although Dr. John Blatherwick, of the Coastal Health Authority reassured
everyone that most breast implants were perfectly safe to 25 below,
down-filled bras are flying off the shelves at Mountain Equipment Co-op.

"The government has to do something," snarled an angry Trevor Warburton. "I
didn't pay $540,000 for my one bedroom condo so I could sit around and be
treated like someone from Toronto."

if she only knew how true it was - Mommy even went out and got SNOW TIRES for the RAIN. Real clever Mommy. I refused to poop. Daddy didn't work for a few days.... How dreadful this blizzard has been - heh heh


  1. This all sounds like a very normal day in Ohio...brrr!
    Except the folks here live in small cheap houses, drink gas station coffee, fear only running out of beer, catch all their fish out of the "crick" out back, day-dream about affording bigger boobs and harvest their marijauna crops by the end of October!
    After a while, pooping in the snow is sort of normal...
    Hang in there mini Minou, it'll get better!

  2. Hmm...frozen breast implantss...that's something I never have thought about....
