Playing in the snow

Winnipeg broke the record for the warmest January this year since records started in the 1870s – this city, which has been nicknamed Winterpeg because of its frigid winter temperatures.

My kids and my sister’s took advantage of the warmer temperatures in December and January and turned our backyard into a winter playground. They made a huge snowman, built snow forts, dug foxholes, played with toboggans and slid on snow hills.

    Wow! That’s a lot of snow. It must have been fun. The snowfall we had in previous year, was not enough for one to roll into.

    Although I’ve become a pretty good downhill skier over the years (took up the sport to alleviate my annual winter blues), deep down, I never did appreciate the cold weather and snow. 😦

    In nyc, I was happiest and most creative/productive during spring and winter. 🙂

    Haha… your definition of warm is really quite funny to someone sitting in 20 deg Celcius climes. I thought you were about to complain about the lack of snow, and not that the “warmer” weather allowed the kids to have more fun outside! But good for them all. It looks like they had a ball of a time.

    Looks like they had fun in the snow. What a nice backyard.

    It’s obvious the kids had fun with snow. Happy, happy, happy.

    I agree with Hsin… it is still looking very very very cold to me ! 🙂
