When one tries to small-talk with another, the first topic to talk about that comes to mind is the weather.

The weather in Vancouver is unpredictable, and sometimes bi-polar.

From where I came from, there were only two seasons: the rainy season and the sunny season. But here in North America, there are four: winter, spring, summer, and autumn/fall!

Currently, we are in the autumn season, where the leaves start to yellow and fall. This is the season when it begins to get cold and frosty. In December 21st, winter begins!

So what is it about the Vancouver weather? A Vancouverite must know the infamous moniker named to the city- RainCouver. The name says it all; it almost always rains in Vancouver.

Do not be fooled if it's sunny in the morning and haven't checked "The Weather Network" yet. It could potentially rain! There have been many days when the sun was shining up high, the sky cloudless. Then a few hours later, it starts raining like cats and dogs. Also through past experiences, most of the time if it's sunny, it's cold. On the other hand, if it rains, it's not as cold.

Of course, the statements said here are not scientifically proven but are from experiences of my peers and mine. This coming winter, make sure to bring an umbrella with you at all times unless it's certain that there would be sunshine.

When the rain and the cold come, just remember to keep calm and cozy!

Have a grand day.
