Winter Woes

This past winter hasn't been very kind to us here in Vancouver. In fact, it's been downright brutal for our pool and spa. We have had the longest cold snap in 32 years. Although mock-able to the rest of Canada, the temperature was below 5 degrees (not factoring in wind chill) for 33 days in a row. On top of that, we've also received several large snowstorms. We've had crazy wind, torrential rain, never-ending temperature fluctuations, snow, ice, and long cold snaps. We usually don’t have to deal with winter anywhere close to the way the East Coast does. As we all know, Vancouver winters tend to be rather mild. This winter, however, has been hard.
