For those of you who don't know, Winnipeg is in the flat prairies on a river that floods every spring. It's miserably cold in the winter and ridiculously hot in the summer - no one's version of a fun place to go for a holiday. But when people you love live there, you suck it up and go visit them.
Hopefully I'll find the beauty of the city on this trip and will post some lovely pictures when I get home. Check out this video (an old Fountain Tire commercial) for the correct attitude on "going to Winnipeg".
Going to Winnipeg
As you can see, not everyone's idea of a fun vacation stop. I'll enjoy myself anyway.
