A Walk in the Snow

With the temperature hovering around 0C, I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive where I could walk. There is still snow on the ground, which arrived a few days ago. The forecast says the temperature will be up around 10C in a few days – but I’m not holding my breath. The water… Continue reading A Walk in the Snow
