It’s that time of year again, when the most common topic of conversation is the dreaded forthcoming snow. I have yet to fully understand this hatred for snow, however. Yes, it’s a pain to drive in and makes traffic horrendous some days, but what about all the other amazing things it brings with it?
The sun sparkling off of the snow like diamonds and the trees made into ghosts by the snow are such a wonderful sites that everyone should have the pleasure of seeing. We as Calgarians are so spoiled to live close and have such easy access to so many beautiful places that allow us to fully enjoy what winter has to offer.
Why not love winter? There is so much to do once it snows. Just to list a few, there is: skiing downhill and cross-country, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tobogganing , snowmobiling, skating, ice fishing and curling. Then there is always the comfy, cozy feeling of warming up by the fire place with a nice warm cup of tea and big blanket.
So, get out there and give winter a chance! Invest in some good quality layers and outerwear and GO EXPLORE. We are all stuck living in a winter wonderland for 6 + months of the year, why not learn to love it.
I look forward to hearing about your winter adventures at your next hygiene appointment.
