A strange thing happened last week as I was driving home from work. I looked around me and noticed a warm glow. It took awhile to register what it was... and then I realized - it was the sun.
Winnipeg is known for it's frosty but sunny winters, however the past 2 years have seen a reversal. Mild but cloudy winters. Add to that the fact that the sun will set just after 4:00 on the shortest day of the year and you can see that the sun is a rare commodity for us Winnipeggers at the moment.
At the end of January we now have sun until after 5:00. I took these photos in front of my house on that sunny day.
To be honest, I don't like winter at all. I try to ignore it. I go to work, busy myself with a million and one things so I don't have to actually realize that I live in a deep freeze for 4 months of the year.
