Winter Wonderland: Winnipeg, Canada


Snow has finally arrived in Winnipeg in time for Christmas. But while this may be met with a lot of sighs of disappointment; holiday lights, parties, and get-togethers will definitely complement this cold Yuletide season.

Canadians call the place “Winterpeg”, known for its cold, harsh winds, and immense amount of snowfall. Winter arrives in the city erratically; with snow falling as early as mid-September and as late as December. January and February are always proven to be the coldest time of the year.

Last 2011, we’ve been pretty lucky because it was not “that” cold (the city’s temperature could drop up to -40 to -50 degrees celcius, with the wind chill). It was evident because the skating rinks didn’t freeze up that long. For someone who gets cold easily, this is a good thing.

With 2012 about to close its doors, the city is once again enveloped in white. The first day of snow fall is always the hardest time to drive, so everyone should always be careful. When the temperature see-saws from high to low, melted snow turned to shiny block ice which are equally dangerous, whether you are walking or driving.

I have to admit though, that since I’ve gotten used to having snow during the holiday season, it feels a bit incomplete without seeing the snow, or even having friends and visitors not wearing something warm and cozy. I guess, having a small amount of snow is not bad for me at all.
