ChibiHorsewoman Posted January 31, 2010 Share Posted January 31, 2010 [color=#9933ff][font=monotype corsiva][size=4]Okay so it's less than two weeks now til the opening ceremonies of the big game being played in my in-laws' province of [B]British Columbia[/B] and well nothing is up here yet. So I've decided to try to breathe some new life into this forum with the Olympic thread. The most interesting part is that the premier of [B]British Columbia[/B] has been doing so much to get Vancouver and nearby Whistler ready for the games and has been doing some money raising by making special edition license plates- I saw my fair share of them in the Central part of the province. Well those and a bunch of stuffed animals in the [B]Zeller's[/B] department stores. Now I'm kicking myself for not buying a few. There's also a problem with the weather. Both [B]Vancouver [/B]and [B]Whistler[/B] have been too warm and rainy to create snow- no snow means no out door sports. Maybe they could take a plane up to [B]Ft. Fraiser[/B]? They've snow up there. And mountains that'd put the ones in [B]Whistler[/B] to shame. One strange thing about the torch run when it got into [B]British Columbia [/B](although maybe it's not strange since this is only the first time I've been talking to people in the area where the Olympics will be held?) is that the torch has almost been making a circle around the province. I talked to my fiance on Tuesday and he said the torch runners came by his school in Kelowna which is 4 hours north of [B]Vancouver[/B] and when I talked to his mom she'd said they were running it through [B]Canoe [/B]which is five and a half hours north of [B]Vancouver[/B] and Friday I heard it went through[B] Kamloomps [/B]which is 3 hours north of [B]Vancouver[/B]. Ah well as long as it gets there in time. So I guess I'm wondering if anyone has any controversy or just wants to talk about the games when they do happen. I just can't wait to see the hockey games and see if the games were worth the tax hikes.[/color][/font][/size] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
