At the beginning of December, I came out to Boundary Bay to see if I could get bragging rights to seeing the first of the snowy owls. The skies were clear and daytime highs were -4, making for some impressive views out to Mount Baker.
It was cold enough to freeze the mid-to-high tide lines to a slushy layer, giving the fantastic illusion of a frozen sea.

Three weeks later, and throughout most of the country, the weather has gotten colder. Here, on the west coast of BC, it has gotten warmer.
