What we do when it snows…

Vancouver is finally getting some snow! Here I am looking very excited (and wearing the exact thing I am in every single photo on this website – it’s like I am a poor clown with only one costume). The reason I am excited is because this snowy weather can only mean one thing… (there’s a hint somewhere in this picture)…
