I can’t imagine the conditions that would make me nostalgic for winter.
I do appreciate that winter is a season anticipated by some people as eagerly as I welcome summer’s brief sojourns to Cape Breton’s shores. These are people who ski or Skidoo, skate, or toboggan, and who spray wind-chill repellant under their arms. It has not been a happy winter for them. What greater escape for them from the threat of COVID than skimming across the Cape Breton Highlands high above the virus’s reach. Instead, in shutdowns or semi-shutdowns, their only option may be to sleep in the fridge.
