Vancouver Photos of the Week

December 11th, 2013 @ 11:02am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Sunshine, frost, sleet, slush, salt and snow. We’ve had it all during the first half of December in Vancouver and winter hasn’t even officially arrived.

The sidewalks are sprinkled with salt, puddles are frozen, and toques are abundant. It’s a chilly start to December in Vancouver as the sun shines and festive holiday activities keep us busy.
