When life gives you snow ...

Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba, has been nicknamed Winterpeg because of its long and cold winters. Although we’ve had a milder winter so far, we usually get a lot of snow and experience extreme temperatures. But one thing you’ll admire about Winnipeggers is our ability to be positive about all of these. So when life gives us snow, we …
... make (huge) snowballs.


... make a snowman.


... make snow sculptures.

That's just the nature of man - do the best with what you have! Those are pretty impressive sculptures there. Are they done professionally or just some artistic kids in the neighbourhood?

I saw these sculptures when I went downtown the other day. They are nothing compared to the ones we get during the Festival du voyageur which is an annual French-Canadian celebration coming up in a couple of weeks. They usually make sculptures of animals, people, etc. I don't know if people get paid for doing them or just as a hobby. No, I don't think they were done by kids.

I'm impressed that Winnipeggers are so adaptable to the cold. I'm still complaining about the constant rain here.
