Enjoying the Holidays
This year's holidays were quite cold with temperatures between -35 to -25 degrees Celsius. The snow squeaks and crunches as you walk at this temp. Scarves and balaclavas become very important to avoid frostbite. It is truly beautiful, because the sun is always shining at this temperature. The majority of Canada experienced a cold snap. I'm sure there were many Canadians snuggled up to the woodstove with a warm coffee in hand, enjoying family time. Our family enjoyed a few snowshoe walks in the bright sunshine and some good bonfires with hot chocolate. How did you spend your holidays?
This year has been a beautiful and rare start to winter. Once in a while - and not even every year - the conditions are just right for lake skating. For this to happen, the ice has to be acceptable quality; this is rare because either there's too much snow or the snow fell on wet ice and created a rough surface. This year we've been blessed with a few weeks of ideal ice conditions. I've been busy updating the website, getting all the paperwork in order for offering excursions and basically doing that fun (kidding) office work at a computer. So, it is especially sweet to unwind at the end of the day, cruising down the lake with a sunset in the sky that reflects in the ice! You can see the full album for this rare experience complete with sunsets, puppies and good friends here. How about you? How did you kick-off Winter 2017-18 Season?
