A winter’s query

What is your most memorable experience of winter?

If you leave in the eastern part of North America- Canada how did you cope with the severe cold? Were you affected by thawing and freezing as Montreal was?

Are you a skier or snowboarder?

If you are a snowboarder why did you choose that sport?

    I was on the track team at a small university on the pier of Lake Michigan (winter 1954) . The coach told us to do our usual 2-5 mile run. In sub zero weather? We did it and it was exhilerating!
    Clem, now in sunny Arizona .

    I felt I needed to get out of sunny California. That was 1964–one of the coldest winter’s on record at that time when I moved to Missoula, Montana, in order to attend school at the University of Montana. When I started there, it was Montana State University–then they switched out the name with the school in Bozeman; it became UoM… When them temp reached 40 below a a couple of occasions, I was ecstatic. While colder than Big Bear in the winter in Southern California, it was even more exhilarating. Nowadays, as I approach my 70th birthday, I wouldn’t live in a clime as cold as Western Montana. It’s cold enough here in Siskiyou County California. It sometimes reached 5 below–but never anywhere near what it is in Western Montana. I now prefer warmth! I’m old!

    Je suis plus une skieuse. Je n’en fais pas régulièrement, par contre. J’ai bien essayer le snowboard mais un peu difficile. Je préfère le ski de soirée !! Un sport quelque peu dispendieux, mais dévaler les pentes avec un petit vent froid n’a pas de prix !

    I did cope with the cold by making food that did put a comforting smell in the house. Invite people in and have nice casual night with games ! Cold winter night in Montreal are the best for social fun !

    This year was 2 specials night in my memories : my Christmas diner with all of my 13 family and friends that came to my house ! It was a magical night ! And our night skiing as a family. My husband first time in almost 15 years ! It was so much fun !!
