  1. the north shore mountains look incredible today. Perfect day, no rain in the city, snow on the mountains.

      About 1997? We had a snowfall in November. I was working for a cell phone company on the North Shore.

      So I was driving over the Lions Gate Bridge. And snow was starting to fall. It was one of those picture postcard moments. Then I think it was CFMI on the radio, the DJ played Greg Lake's "I Believe in Father Christmas". It was that brief moment in syncronicity, and to top it off. The crescendo was right as I was driving off the bridge. 


      I won't forget that moment. I gotta say it was beautiful. Gave me chills, but in a good way.

      @Ghostsof1915 Awesome mate. it's beautiful how such moments get frozen in memory. Had one like that where I was drivin home from Cowtown(Dec 1992)..had broken up with LT girl, & even my heater(old Datsun) was broken!

      :^) blowin cold air, all night thru the Rockies. I was blastin G & R, screamin lyrics louder than Axel, to keep warm. Finally reached Hope..the town that is, not the state of mind,  Couldn't pick up Van radio yet, but wondered which tune would welcome me back to Gawd's country.

      Around Chilli, there were Larry & Willy's grating enthusiasm, announcing they were now playing the MOST requested tune, for some call-in, who wanted to record the classic:

       

      "I'll have a bbbbbbbb blue Christmmas, w,w,w,without youuuuuu!..." (the Porky Pig classic cover)

      Felt so damn good..laughin with a tear in the eye! 28 yrs, & feels like yesterday.
