A familiar symphony lulls Vancouver to sleep. Behind rain tapped windows, morning breaks in hues of rain forest winter gray. Storm after Pacific storm delivers seasonal monotones. Seemingly eternal bleakness, occasionally punctuated by meteorologic anomalies. Wrapped in a few days sunshine, winter’s merciful gift lifts even the darkest spirits. Sunlight isn’t the only present winter has up her sleeve – when you least expect, dense fog transforms winter monotony into columns of dancing light.
