El Puerco

Evidently my affection for cured and salted pork products has inspired some less-than-palatable stocking stuffers.

Yes, they are real.

And yes, they are execrably foul.

Holy F*cking Sh*t

OK. 3" on the ground? Not such a big deal.

Snow bucketing down. Rare but not unheard of.

-7C overnight? Very cold for Vancouver, but not a record.

But below zero for over a week, sheets of ice on the roads and sidewalks, and our fountain not only frozen over, but snowed under. At sea level.

Hopefully this kills off the pine beetle.


Sea level snow

Hard to see with this phone's crappy lens, but that shows just under 6" of snow.
