Yes, it’s the dead of winter here in Ontario. As I look out my office window – I see what looks like a deserted tundra of blowing snow and ice. Bare trees and people bundled in their warmest clothes searching for indoors. It’s a difficult time of year – to be trapped inside. I look forward to our quickly approaching travels to New Orleans and Miami, some warm weather will do us some good.
Winter really isn’t as bad as I make it seem… I love skiing, skating, tobogganing, ice fishing, the list goes on. (Ah, yes I sound Canadian) Since the winter takes the amazing fresh lakes all around us away, we make the best of it by cutting holes in the ice to gain access to the underwater world and go exploring with our Deep Trekker; plus it makes ice fishing way more fun.
So today on this -38C with the wind-chill day I want to know what is it that you do to enjoy the winter months? Or if you’re one of the many lucky readers living in a more tropical climate feel free to rub it in or let us know what you would do if you were in the Canadian winter for a few days.
