PART 1 Reflections on snow; trappers, travellers and old timers, wide eyed new Canadians seeing snow for the first time, scientists, poets and writers; even angry disputes betweem driveway snow shovellers. So many different takes on our familiar winter companion.
PART 2 We glide, we wobble, we love it, we hate it, the winter world of ice and hockey; the magic of an effortless early morning skate over a frozen pond, or if you didn't grow up skating, the torment and triumph of putting sharp blade on slippery ice for the first time. PLUS; out on the rink with the hard playing, hard drinking women of "Chicks with Sticks", and the men of "The Lightning", the slowest team in a very slow league.
