This memoir sums up my feelings quite well I think. Yes winter is beautiful, hoar frost on the trees and snowflakes in your hair, I love all of that. It's just the cold I hate. Why can't Winnipeg just have winter without the minus 40 below zero?? I took this picture of myself a couple years ago, I like it because of the contrast of the black with the white snow and the snow flakes on my legs. I think it's really beautiful but what you don't see in the picture is that even though it looks nice and wonderful it was actually minus 40 with the wind chill that day..
