The epic winter my wish came true

read

I do love my snow. But after our last snowfall (right when I was attempting to take off for Maui over Christmas), I really thought that was it for us. But I was soooooo wrong. After my return, over the course of 3 days, 80 cm (pretty much 3 feet) hit us. And for BC’s west […]
