Breathtakingly Beautiful Giant Snow Castle in Winnipeg
Last January, after living in Toronto for 14 years, I moved back to my hometown, Winnipeg. And even though Toronto gets plenty of snow – more, in fact, than Winnipeg! – the minus twenty temperatures on the prairies ensure that snow stays on the ground over here.
My two-year-old loves being taken for rides in his sled, and our pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood of Wolseley is perfect for long walks. Last month we came across an enormous snow castle on Home Street, just a few blocks away: Castle Carla.
When I say enormous, I’m not kidding: this giant snow castle straddles two entire front yards.
I was touched that he dedicated it to his neighbour Carla Stefansson, who passed away January 10th.
Kids are pure like a songbird, in a sense.”
