Winter is a time of lights—on the house, on the Christmas tree, in the oven while you bake cookies and on the thermostat when you turn up the heat. The days have gotten shorter, temperatures have dropped and it’s a great time to cozy up with friends and family. It’s also a time of high energy usage. From 1990 to 2008, Canada’s population has grown at a rate of 0.7% annually, but our energy consumption has grown at a rate of 1.3%. In British Columbia, space and water heating has been the major power consumer.

Walking my dog often immerses me in weather I would otherwise avoid and I've learned that the appropriate outwear can make inclement weather a lot more bearable.
