My name is John Canning and I am currently an international student at JCC from Canada! You’ve probably have seen my broad chested physique walking around campus. I shall not bore you with my hot-aired boasting for much longer as this is moreso an introduction post and to get one thing straight out of the way… I love the snow! Bring it on! I reign from Kelowna, BC, which sits in the middle of the Okanagan valley. As a consequence of this, much of our weather is comparably mild due to both the heat-trapping of the valley and international pollutants that carry over the ocean (would you believe smog from China travels that far?) As such, we do get snow, obviously. Canada is known for its snow! But this Chautauqua snow is something else~! I don’t even need to go to the gym since merely walking to school every day gives me a leg workout! Regardless, I love it. The way that it creates a blanket over the town and makes it seem almost silent amidst all the bustling around.
