Winterize your deck!

Edmonton can relate to our cold climate and miserable winters but they aren’t taking it anymore.  Here is a tip on winterizing your deck, something I wish some Saskatoon restaurants would try.

It’s January in Edmonton, and a quick glance outside your window may find a once-lush and lively deck now slumbering peacefully under a thick batting of snow. Well, rise and shine — the dawn of a new year is a great time to shake your deck out of hibernation and turn it into a hopping hot spot, even as temperatures plummet. Sure, nobody wants to sit outside in -30 C wind chill, no matter how many hot toddies one has. But on days hovering around -10 C, a social gathering set against a snowy backdrop in the crisp, wintry air is an exhilarating rite of passage for prairie city dwellers.

Forget waiting on Saskatoon restaurants, how about doing this in your own backyard.
