I was born in Canada, so I endured many years of winter weather. I don’t remember when I started to dislike snow, cold, slush, ice, wearing huge parkas, plugging the car in (yes, engine block heaters are a thing!), etc., but I am quite happy living in a warmer climate now.

My middle daughter happens to love winter, which makes me question her DNA. When the kids were growing up, the only thing I enjoyed about winter was teaching them to ski and taking them out to ski each weekend.
