We're deep into winter now, and there's no question that snowstorms create inconveniences.

But Canadians, we know how to cope. When winter bears down on the Great White North, ingenious residents can still find all sorts of creative ways to take advantage of the cold and snow.

We may whine, but we also endure. Here are a few things that Canadians have done to survive the winter season.

They've built an ice castle on a lake.

Actually, they've built numerous ice castles.

An army of snowmen ...

"Tens of thousands." "But, my lord, there is no such force!"

Or "singing" Easter Island statues.

They've stood in a self-heating bus shelter.

Or done snow yoga.


They've built a backyard luge track.

And a seriously awesome backyard hockey rink.

No, we mean SERIOUSLY awesome.

They've proposed a city skateway.

Or just skated on the sidewalk.

They've built a giant wall of snow ...

They've become sculptors ...

Or they've shovelled shirtless in -10 degree weather (that's Celsius, of course).

In any case, Canadians endure. But they also know how to have fun doing it.
