- It’s a great idea and works in the city of Vancouver except when it’s snowing and or heavily raining i.e. it works for 365 days a year minus 100 hours or so :-) but we love our convenience and able bodied folks can’t cope with a wee bit of rain or coolness (which is weird to me since those same folks eat outside in -10 at ski resorts like Whistler)

This fantastic! Probably wrong prediction: This will all be forgotten by 2025. But I think those who don't have illnesses triggered by light rain & have warm rain gear should consider eating in light rain (under some shelter) even Post Pandemic. It's fun! https://t.co/GSk2sKqv8W— Roland Tanglao 猪肉面 (@rtanglao) May 23, 2021
- But we’ll forget just like we forgot why steam radiators are so warm!
- From NPR: “CHANG: Oh, so familiar. As it turns out, radiators that work too well are partly a result of the 1918 flu pandemic. You see; there was once something called the Fresh Air Movement. It called for people to be outside more and for there to be plenty of ventilation indoors.”

How To Vancouverite in the Rain: Always carry chopsticks, spoon, fork, knife wrapped in a napkin since you never know when you’ll have a hankering for adobo, pancit, mapo tofu, kimchi stew, chana masala or sushi
