I don’t know about you but I have had it with winter. It is March. The spring equinox is days away and it's -35. Are you freaking kidding me? Winter activities are a lovely concept but when it’s that cold for the duration of winter, that means sledding, snowmen and snow angels are out of the question. You know, on account of not wanting to lose limbs to frostbite. We have, however, been drinking more than our share of hot chocolate.
This year, winter has been endless and relentless in its fury. I could go on and on about how we, who live in Saskatchewan, have it worse than the rest of Canada but that isn’t true. The East Coast has had more than its fair share of freezing rain, Ontario has been in a deep freeze almost as much as the Prairies and B.C. has had record snow fall this year. Even Vancouver, which usually only gets rain, got snow at Christmas. Relentless winter, in any form, is still relentless winter.
