Living through a Winnipeg winter can easily break the unprepared especially if you haven’t had much experience in colder climates. It is typical for Winnipeggers to go on and on about the weather like it’s some sort of battle tale, victory coming after trudging through yet another frigid winter. Of course this is obviously exaggerating reality, but there certainly is something to be said about the toughness of those who choose to live in this city!

There was a nice mix of winter attire being worn yesterday on the streets. A few shots from my lunch hour photo walk.
