Wascana Creek

It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. ”
–John Burroughs

Every winter, I walk by frozen Wascana Creek, and think wouldn’t it be awesome if it was turned into a skating rink!

As I’ve written before, I think Regina is quite a pretty city.  However, I much prefer it in this season…

Wascana Creek in Winter

It is currently minus 32 degrees here.  Shudder.  The debate at work is would you rather have the massive amount of snow of the never-ending winter of 2013 or the mind-numbingly frigid start to 2014???

(At least when it’s cold it’s usually sunny…that’s the only positive I can think of!!!)
