So far our winter over here on the West Coast of Canada has been unusually mild. Only had 1/2 inch of snow and only two or three weeks of below freezing temperatures. And now for the last 5 weeks we've been enjoying daytime temperatures in the mid 50's (above 10° C). If this is "Global Warming" bring it on, we're loving it!
Even with this mild weather I was still surprised several days ago when I spotted this fellow paddle boarding in Hardy Bay. Though the day was warm you know darn well the water would have been freezing!
