Vancouver Weather: Cold Temps Make Great Photos

Vancouver: a city whose people are often colder than its climate.

But lately the weather has jumped in on the act too, with temperatures dropping to lows of -10 degrees Celsius on Saturday.

With signs emerging that the weather is set to return to its warmer winter norms, we felt it was time to reflect on the brief cold snap that gripped the city over the past week.
