Yay - Winter's here! It's time for Winterlude

I never thought I'd hear myself say that I'm glad to see snow and relieved that the weather has cooled considerably. I'm a sun worshipper. I love those exceedinly hot, humid summer days when everyone else is melting and complaining. I bask in that heat. In fact, I have a rule - you can't complain about the heat if you're going to complain about the cold in winter. pick one. So I choose to hate cold winter days.

But this year, all of us here in Ottawa thought winter would never come. We had a green Xmas, and a green New Year's day. I thought I might have to mow the lawn in mid-December! It just wasn't right.

All that to say, I can't wait to strap on my skates and head out on the canal. Winterlude festivities start tonight with a concert series at the Snowbowl. The bowl is located on the ice in front of the NAC. (

I spoke with the artistic coordinator at NCC about the events and how he manages the enterntainment for Winterlude. In his 10th year, Joel DeLaquis, who also coordinates artistic programming for Canada Day, sounds like he loves his job. Listen to Hop The Fence tonight for details about upcoming events and how local talent can get in on the action too. - Fridays at 5 p.m.
