We went from spending a winter in Edmonton, Alberta during a year with record snowfall to living in Ontario during a record breaking warm winter. When the snow DOES fall, we try to make it to a hill for some tobogganing. We act fast. The snow can disappear the next day.
We have made it when school is out and the hill is covered and we also have made it during a school day where the hill is practically our own. Both are fun!
