When the first snowflakes fell last week, at first we were all excited about the winter wonderland outside our doors. And who can blame anyone? With Vancouver averaging less than six inches of snow every year, the foot we got last week was historic and beautiful to boot.

But some of you — actually let’s be real, all of us — got sick of seeing the white stuff outside. Kids have been out of school for a week. Downtown was an ice rink days after the snow fell. Then the rain started, bringing with it slush and the threat of flooding.
Beyond ready for winter to be over.

The snow was cute for a couple of days, but I’m done now. Would like temperatures about 30 and no ice, thanks!

Someone tell Elsa to just let it go already. Tired of this weather.

Businesses and local non-profits have had to close, including The Columbian’s business office…

But through it all, at least some of us kept our heads on straight and our priorities in order.
Am I the only one worried about the pizza delivery guys in this icy weather
