|Here it what it looked like this afternoon. There are low lying clouds that make the mountains disappear!|
The City is preparing for a huge sporting event which will take place here on Friday. I have it on good authority that there was a buzz in the air downtown today much like during the Winter Olympics held in 2010.

This year's Grey Cup Festival takes place here in Vancouver from November 24-27, 2011 and the host football team is our very own BC Lions. Downtown will be alive with free concerts and Festival activities from Friday, November 25 through Sunday, November 27th, and there are many different activities taking place for adults and children alike. However the big event is obviously the 99th Grey Cup game on Sunday between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the BC Lions.
I'll be staying away from downtown.
Amongst other things, I don't like large and raucous crowds. But I do hope our City puts on a good and safe event that will be remembered for years to come by those with the courage to head downtown and the funds to spend on those expensive Grey Cup tickets.
