Brandon’s winter-defying, swimsuit-wearing granny is at it again.
Kim Bright, who last year began filming short quirky videos of herself braving the Manitoba cold in a one-piece swimsuit (with shoes and winter hat) has again posted videos on YouTube.
In one of her latest, she declared six more weeks of winter after she emerged from a hole in a snowbank on Groundhog Day, and in another, the grandmother ran short distance with an Olympic torch which was posted on Friday as the games in Sochi began.
"Go Canada Go," she and another bikini-clad woman yells in the off-beat salute to athletes, followed by "Fight on Manitoba!" — a tagline she yells in each video.
Last year, Bright’s videos of herself in a swimsuit riding a snowmobile, sledding down a hill, riding a bike, and walking her dog racked up thousands of views.
"It’s just having a different attitude towards winter," she told the Sun last March. "If you take a positive attitude, it goes a lot better than grumbling."
