Editorial: Winter warmth comes through

Four-season whining about the weather is the national and Prince George pastime. Too hot during the heat dome. Too much rain during the fall.

Four-season whining about the weather is the national and Prince George pastime.

Too hot during the heat dome.

Too much rain during the fall.

And those people who were wanting some snow in November (you know who you are), your wishes have been granted.

In normal times (that is, pre-COVID-19), more affluent residents would be flocking south for a break from the snow and cold. Some still are but the Omicron variant’s spread raises doubts about personal safety and the prospect of being stranded, unable to return indefinitely.

While the complaining about everything and everyone and woe is me continues unabated on social media, others are busy doing their part to help.

A local family lost their husband and dad in a workplace accident on Boxing Day and residents rushed to their aid.

Whether it’s a pandemic, nasty weather or personal tragedy, being together is the warmth that carries us through the darkest and coldest days.
