Update ... Snow, 2012/13

Snow falls in Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb and March in Ottawa. Snow is how we define winter.

Anna in snow

Although Anna and Nate downhill ski each weekend during January and February, they still love to go tobogganing. We often use the hill at the end of our street. Anna at the top of the hill at the Arboretum, 24 December 2012.

Alex in snow

We have fall coats and spring coats. Instead of a winter coat, we have snow suits, boots, waterproof gloves, neck warmers and tuques. Alex walking by the Ottawa River, January 2013.

Nate skating

Rideau Canal, which runs through the centre of the city, freezes and becomes the world's longest ice-skating rink. Nate moving fast, February 2013.
