It’s February. And although we have had quite a mixed bag of weather  in Nova Scotia, FOR SURE there is still stormy weather coming our way at some point. We may even be snowed in.
Here’s a list of 20 activities to keep yourself from going stir crazy, and quite a few you can do with no power as well.

  1. Take an online course. There are tons of free or low cost courses in every imaginable topic.
