It’s Coming

4 Nov

I woke up this morning to find frost on the grass in the backyard. It’s coming.

My first winter in the great white north.

    ooohh, pretty back yard. Winter. The reason I moved out of the great white north!

    Fun!! Just sit by the fire and drink hot chocolate. I live in Lake Elizabeth, Cal. It snows at our house so when it does we start a fire in our Pellet stove and watch the snow come down. Stay warm!!!

    Oh I love your back yard.

    Hello Mr. Garcia,
    I’ve been a big fan of you from LOST but have never been to Hawaii. I live in Rhode Island and wondered if you now live in New England or thereabouts where you saw your first frost on the ground!

    Take care–love reading your blog in “Further Dispatches…”

    Ooh, I love your back yard!! Bet you can’t wait, huh?

    Enjoy the snow in that beautiful yard 🙂 Will we have pix of snowmen and other assorted creatures to look forward to? We’ve already had some frosty nights here in Ohio…and all the long term weather reports say more snow and colder than usual temps this winter. Our eskimo dog, Momo is going to love it…Charlie (chihuahua) not so much ;D LOL…you’ll have to shovel a path for Pip and Smidge.

      Such a wonderfully manicured yard you have. Mine always looked wild, overgrown and gnarly….which it was. Alas, in here in Brooklyn I have no yard. Well, unless you count the BBG as one.

    Beautiful backyard! My backyard looks like a jungle.. Have you already bought a slider?

    You shouln’t get too much snow in Vancouver. You will be lucky if you can make a footprint, let alone a snowman 🙂 Enjoy the frosty weather, and know that most other Canadians are jealous of the weather in VanCity!

    ………..and we’re honoured to have you here. Hope you experience snow at least once.

    Couldn’t you have used Game of Thrones’ iconic phrase “winter is coming” as a headline due to copyright issues?

    But I guess you were going the subtle way with this reference… 😉

    the thing is coming.

    Watch out for the polar bears.

    Don’t worry the spring is a mere six months away. You can bide the time watching
    Hockey Night in Canada. Don Cherry is quite possibly the greatest Canadian, forget Alexander Graham Bell or Fredrick Banting – Don Cherry is Canadiana!

    I live in Cleveland. We get us some serious snow. You will love it!

  16. Annie November 4, 2011 at 3:17 pm #

    Uhhh, I’m not sure Vancouver qualifies as the “great white north”. One of the very few places in Canada that stays green all winter; you might get some snow but I bet you’ll get way more rain than snow…

    Ah well, flowers in February is always nice…

  17. Becca November 4, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    Is your backyard a putting green?

  18. Jennie November 4, 2011 at 3:32 pm #

    Oh honey, Vancouver is not the great white north… it is the banana belt of Canada. Come to northern Manisnowba and we’ll show you some great white winter.

    lot different from lovely Hawaii huh?..

  20. BethS November 4, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    It’s on its way to Northeast Ohio too … brace yourself!
    Beautiful backyard you have! Make sure to make some snow people and take pics!!

  21. Michelle November 4, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

    Vancouver is much like Seattle. More rain than snow I believe. But you should see one or two snowstorms perhaps. Which is just as well because let’s face it, shoveling is the pits. :p

    Stay warm!

  22. Colleen November 4, 2011 at 6:20 pm #

    Jorge, you’re in Vancouver. That doesn’t even count! You want to experience the Great White North, you’re going to have to come inland a bit.

  23. randi November 4, 2011 at 6:55 pm #

    If you are close to the coast it won;t be too bad. You’ll love it. it’s beautiful. Just be careful driving and get little coats for the pups

  24. Kathyann November 4, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

    Good Luck! I grew up in NE Wisconsin. LoL

  25. lostsailors November 4, 2011 at 9:24 pm #

    Omg, I miss snow! I moved out to SoCal and winter holidays just aren’t the same without some of the white stuff!

  26. Lori Howden-Weaver November 4, 2011 at 10:50 pm #

    It will stay quite green there, generally! If you want Great White, definitely come to Edmonton (14 hour drive North-East for those who are unfamiliar)!!!!!!! It gets so cold here that things creak (like a car or anything metal)!!!

    Have fun! Vancouver snow is quite wet, so it will be good snowman weather if you get it!!!

  27. Lori Howden-Weaver November 4, 2011 at 10:56 pm #

    …and, ironically, I go there to my coastal home on Galiano Island for Christmas to get away from winter (tee hee…I’m serious)!!!! When I get home to Edmonton after, I always scream…we have to go baaaaaaaaack, we have to go baaaaaaaack ( I miss LOST)!!!!!

    That’s a very ‘Plants Vs Zombies’ backyard.

    Very cool Hobbit production video:

    Que jardin mas bien cuidado! disfruta de la nieve que te va traer el invierno y de esas tazas de chocolate caliente junto a la chimenea del salón bajo una buena manta mirando como caen los copos tras la ventana junto con buena compañía.

    Un beso,

    Meanwhile, in Virginia, we had our first snow on Oct 29th. Way too early!

  32. gaila15 November 5, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    Everyone’s yard looks the same in the winter. 🙂 Enjoy! Oh! Try to stay for Christmas. There’s nothing better than snow on Christmas morning!

  33. The Cook November 6, 2011 at 1:09 am #

    Um, it looks like it’s just me that notices this, but it looks like your backyard is a par 3 fairway. Am I wrong?

  34. john November 6, 2011 at 5:40 am #

    smells like a zombie frost apocalypse to me 🙂

  35. Tammie November 6, 2011 at 10:44 pm #

    After seeing what you can do with a pumpkin, I can’t wait to see some snow creatures made by you, Beth, and friends! Will you be able to resist the urge to make a Polar Bear? ;o)

    un patio muy bonito

  37. Kathy November 7, 2011 at 1:17 pm #

    I also live in a great white north on the other side of the country–Buffalo. You haven’t seen winter till you’ve seen a Buffalo winter. Last year was murderous–we had over 250″ of snow. Yuck. I ‘d like to try Hawaii out for size sometime. Count your blessings on having had so many years there.
