As Vancouver trudges, slides, spins-out, falls and otherwise grudgingly enters the fourth day of its winter bondage (February 13), I am reminded of the Hunger Games film series—both for its interminable length and story line.
Specifically I’m thinking of the way that the people of
Pan-Am, er, Panem finally rose up and threw off the despotic reign of—oh…who was it again?
Oh yes. The evil President SNOW!
Ironically, only good, old-fashioned rain will end the reign of “President Snow” in Vancouver. And that, we are told is coming to our rescue any day now.
And though this will only mean trading one unwelcome guest for another, the snow has so overstayed its welcome that it must go—and take its disagreeably cold and unfamiliar ways with it!
Rain, at least, is a devil that we all know and know how to get along with.
