I grew up on the wild frontier of Quebec City and Calgary (a story for another day).
I loved playing street hockey until mom called me in for supper after which I’d go back out until bed time. If it wasn’t hockey in the street it was epic snow fort battles with authentic WW1 trenches and tunnels.
God I loved winter!!!
Skip ahead 35 years and now I hate it!! I hate starting the car in the dark at -35C, I hate going to and coming from work in the dark, I hate dirty streets, and I hate being cold.
I take a ton of vitamin D each day, it helps a bit.
Best thing for my winter blues to date has been to escape for a quick getaway to the beaches of South Carolina. Their temperatures of 15C were about 35 degrees warmer than what I had left in Calgary.
Yep, I used to love winter now I love escaping from it.
