We had been sure to dress warmly, but nothing short of a balaclava could gave adequately sheltered us from the harshness of that wind! It's a shock to all of us, myself included, a self-described "lover of real winter``.
My daughter's reaction is priceless: ``Um, Dad, where`s the fun? Can we go there now?``

... Niagara Falls but no where near the same amount of water flow. The fall colours around the falls are looking really good at the moment too. At the falls I walked across the suspension bridge, through the trail in the woods, then around to the other side to the top of the rock face. Here I climbed down the stairs to the bottom of the falls and along the path to the visitor center. Then I went back up the stairs. All 462 of them and back across the bridge to the walk ...
