With not being born in Canada but someone who has served in the Canadian Military and lived here for over 34 yrs, my 1st winter was quite the "Shock"
Winter is definitely a love hate relationship for most but for me when I am on the top of a ski hill on a clear sunny day, or skidooing on freshly fallen snow there is nothing better. To look upon a log cabin with lights and snow on the ground now that just can't be beaten!!
Winter can be unappreciated when your driving through a snow storm and can't seem to see more than 10' in front of you, but to wake up in the morning with freshly fallen snow is nothing but a spectacular sight.
And lastly.....We have a family tradition in our home were we go out on Christmas Eve and drive around the neighbourhood's looking at all the houses done up for Christmas with their lights on and Trees in the windows is truly a beautiful sight.
I have attached a few photo's taken over the years hope you enjoy..
