When it comes to winter, we have it pretty easy here in Victoria. While the rest of the country is shoveling driveways and checking for exposed skin, we’re biking to work and smelling the flowers.
Of course, nothing is free—not even our luxuriously mild winters. While we don’t have to worry about our car’s block heater failing, we do have to put up with big storms, weeks of rain, and fading memories of that golden orb in the sky. All of this gloomy weather puts a damper on our spirits that’s not always easy to shake.
