The Husband and I are both prairie kids - he from southern Manitoba, me from southern Alberta.
We love the prairies … in the spring when the crocuses are in bloom in the native grass; in summer when red-tail hawks circle high, keening in the still, hot air; in the fall when the big orange harvest moon swallows up the eastern horizon.
But .. and this is a BIG but … we do not like prairie winters. And this has been a winter to top them all, or at least the past 40 years.
