I have lived through two winters now in Quebec, but last December was my first time flying "in the snow". The day before I left for Australia we had the first major snow storm of the season, which dumped over 20cm of snow on my city. The plane needed to be de-iced before we could take off, something I felt lucky to have learnt about beforehand, since seeing the wings doused in orange goo just before take off is not the SOP in Australia!

Once we were in the air, I relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The normal patchwork blanket of fields and paddocks is transformed when covered in snow......
