Those of you in this part of the world will know Edmonton was lucky enough to escape that nasty phenomenon known as the Polar Vortex(TM) 2014 that happened last week. However, those of you who know of this part of the world will know we’ve suffered through sub-zero temperature for weeks now (with no catchy brand-name, other than the tag known as “Winter”)*.
The SatMP family ventured out of the basement and took advantage of the mild temperatures by visiting the Deep Freeze Festival. It was a lot of fun.
Here are 3 notable shots taken with my iPhone 4: a Norse god Snow Sculpture and 2 of ‘the kids’ experiencing a traditional Quebecois Cabane a Sucre.
Like the time it took for that maple syrup to be slurped up, it also only took seconds to compress the photos (with no quality loss**):
We hope you’re find ways to keep warm in your parts of the world!
* And those of you know really know Edmonton, know that we’re wise enough to both embrace Winter as well as curse it. Go Festival City!
** In fact check out the fuzzy horn things on Norse Guy’s helmet. Still impressively fuzzy.
