Like a fussy child, Vancouver rejects all the post-winter joys in favor of the wet and misty blankets to sleep under. Once in a while you experience the warmth and glory of the season but soon it is dull and wet. It may be a blessing in disguise for the late-risers but they too feel the pinch when they realize that it is an indication of a prolonged dull day. The pessimists are hoodwinked by the sudden disappearance of a seemingly dull day.
In short, it is not like a 5-day cricket match when top order batsmen concentrate in retaining their wickets and building up a huge score so that they can make sure of a draw, if not a victory. It is the 20-20 version of the game. Just when you feel that a team is going great guns, the wickets could tumbleâ€¦
Last but not the least, even on a bright and sunny day, never tell you warm clothes, â€œoff with youâ€, for an unseen cold wind might be in full swing!
