Yesterday, we woke up with ground covered with ice, so we stayed home all day.  Our driveway entrance is right at the cul-de-sac's inlet with the wide expanse of the tarmac circle right in front of our house.  If you follow the street without turning onto another street, you will head into our driveway and into our garage. 

 

Anyway, what I am trying to say is that since we live on a cul-de-sac, we are able to see everything that happens in our neighborhood on the street that leads to our house right in front of us as we sit on our sofa in our living room.  That day, we saw a young couple, who moved in earlier this year, sitting their toddlers on the sleds and sliding down the street all the way onto our driveway.  There was only one car on the road.  The driver was delivering the newspaper.  He was pretty late since it was really slippery on the road.  Though it might seem fun, it was somewhat risky to slide on the road where cars might skid onto the kids.  My son wanted to go out and play but I discouraged him. I am not a daredevil to try stunts like that.  A couple hours later, I saw another neighbor with four kids riding on two snow sleds on the street again.  They stopped short in front of our driveway. 

 

I know that our neighborhood is pretty small and safe without much traffic.  However, to ride a snow sled on the street outside of the cul-de-sac is still considered dangerous, especially on an extremely icy road where cars can easily lose all traction.

  • Yeah, ice is no fun...

    We had our first big snowfall this season. But the moisture was blown in by the warm air, so snow didn't last. Temperature soared from -4C to 3C (25F to 37F) overnight, and snow changed to rain. Now our lawn is green again...
  • It is so rare for Vancouver to be so cold.
