    Smith-Atkins said her daughter and her friends really learned the value of warmth, when “we got back in the car after an hour on the street, they were all freezing and crying for the heater to be on and complaining because they were cold. And they were bundled up.”

    Nova Scotia is on the Eastern coast of Canada and has bitter cold winters. Last year they saw several harsh snowstorms.
