If you’re under pressure to get a Halloween costume together, take note that going as a ghost in a sheet with holes cut for eyes seems quick and easy, but it’s a ball and chain that will be annoying all party long. The whole night will be spent... more

I looked out our window on Halloween Day, 2014. It was only -10ºC outside, but the trees were shaking as the wind howled making it much colder. The weather network put out a warning for Old Crow the night before announcing winds up to 40 kilometres.. more

I don’t mean to alarm you, but it’s almost Hallowe’en, which, as all Yukoners know, means winter will soon descend upon us with the stumbling, frozen fury of a zombie horde from The Walking Dead. If that’s not scary enough for you, here’s three... more
