the road conditions are still pretty bad, but work responsibilities must go on after a snow day. continuing to drive my mom’s car since monday’s snow fall. the rav4 is ways better than my beemer in the snow, but it’s still skidding on the side streets. i just want the snow to stop so i can resume driving my own car and not feel bad for impeding on my mom’s work plans. though i don’t feel bad because my entire family has permission to work from home except

day 2020 – snowed in

had the luxury to sleep in until eleven, like what most people would do on sundays. i decided to skip powerskating because i’ve lacked sleep all week not to mention stiff from two hockey games. woke up and realized it was it was snowing outside. my plans of meeting with friends had to be canceled because it of the unsafe road conditions. i even had to miss out my workout and open gym flipping. i can only imagine what it’s like up on the mountain today

day 1669 – snow boot

img_20200203_1344485607323466488794467.jpgsnow boots all around after hours of flurries. the flurries of snow fall was continuous throughout the day and got heavy at certain points. i risked it and drove to work with my shadow, but got very anxious as the snow fall got heavier and i see my car covered in six inches of white powder. like many others, i left work early, but not early enough to avoid the congested road. it took over 75 minutes of slipping and sliding before i got home, but thankfully got home safely

day 1668 – weathering


the cold vancouver winter is quite frightful and unpleasant for my shadow. the weather forecast has issued a heavy snowfall warning that starts at 6am. i don’t enjoy the snow on city roads because i’m slipping and skidding everywhere. the sight lines up at the mountain is a much better view. it’s making me think back on the warm summer days when i would be outdoor without frozen fingers

day 1283 – february snow

img_20200204_1709521360901277641209614.jpgthe forecast was correct and vancouver indeed got its february snowfall overnight. we were forewarned about the precipitation, but the city did nothing to prepare for this snowfall. there was no signs of salted roads nor trucks shovelling snow. as a result, the road conditions was much worse than it needed to be and more car accidents than there should have been. my hour drive home from richmond back to vancouver was full of skidding

day 1255 – milder weather

reminiscing the summer temperatures because vancity’s winter has been far from mild. i’ve had enough of this snow, extremely chilly days and even earthquakes today. i walk out in the morning to be met by negative eight degrees which is unheard of in vancouver. the icy roads have been terrible; i witnessed accidents and had a few incidents where my car was sliding helplessly. my shadow is just hibernating and waiting for the snow to disappear

the first snowfall of the vancouver winter came early this year, but the snow is better seen and felt up on the mountain. waking up and seeing snow covered ground is a good sign and a bad sign. i didn’t think i’d make it to work this morning as shadow skidded numerous times and even got stuck. snows accounts for terrible driving conditions where my odometer halved and my commute tripling in time

day 1195 – tire swap

img_20200204_2140001959541063953545998.jpgmy shadow treats me well, i will also treat it well with some expensive spanking new bridgestones. it was long overdue, but i finally got my tires replaced and no longer have to worry about incidental drifting even on non rainy days. my day was so scattered today; had little success at having prolonged productivity. ended the night hangry and frustrated, but not feeling worthy if i can’t first match it with productivity

day 134 – miss you at times like this

winter has begun and my beemer is skidding an sliding even on very thin snow. this is when i really miss my old all wheel drive acura and its snow tires. i am not looking forward to anymore snow in the city but please snow more on the mountain top because i cannot afford to be trapped at home on snowy days. i can already fore see winter seasons giving more problems than my car can handle
