Goodbye sunny south; hello frigid cold. If your seasonal migration has been grounded, and it appears staying home is the smart thing to do, then don’t despair—you are not entirely grounded. Stranded Snowbirds is a five-day winter retreat for northerners who traditionally spend time in a warmer location. MBC is preparing to welcome adults left in a holding pattern! What fun you will have as you and other “birds of a feather flock together” to bring sun, sand and surf to Muskoka in February. Think about what you can do, not what you can’t do.
