Well, it’s Friday the 13th and also a full moon, go figure. Sounds like a good transition into a fun and eventful weekend with friends and family. The weather forecast says it’s supposed to be cloudy with flurries and a slight chance of snow, which of course will likely melt given the moderate climate of the North Shore. Fingers crossed for snow though, as we want to do snowshoeing on Grouse Mountain and have a snowball fight.
