Winter in Vancouver can be a drag. Right now I'm looking out the window at grey skies and rain pooling in overly saturated soil. Snow appears and then gets washed away, and often I'll slip in to dark moods lit only by dreams of Hawaii.

It's important to remember that this city does have its Winter bonuses. In case you're new to the city, or you're having some trouble remembering, here's a short list (please let me know if you have anything to add!):

-sailing in December
-bike rides in December
-the odd day the Sun breaks through and makes you remember how beautiful everything is
