Wednesday is garbage day. The Garbage truck comes early so I have to make sure I empty all our receptacles and stuff the discards into our garbage bins, and Surprise . . . it was snowing. Most often the pickup happens before 6:50am.
They have come earlier several times, and I don't want to miss our pickup, so as I wipe the sleep out of my eyes and spring to life commando-style I have to grab my robe and bring out the garbage before I wash up and dress for work. I also bring in our morning paper at the same time
and got a chance to put my footprints in the freshly fallen snow. The sky was clear this morning and I wanted a sunrise photo, but I was too early. For those that don't know, Vancouver is surrounded by mountains on the North, and by water on the South & West. The cloud cover was hovering below the mountain level
