My name is Catharine Hamm, and I’m The Times’ travel editor. Having worked with Pfeiff for nearly 20 years, I was surprised at her fervor for the deep freeze. I knew she was a native of Vancouver, Canada, which is more like Seattle in climate. So how did she become so enamored of places that are so unforgivingly harsh? For that matter, why abandon Vancouver to live in Montreal, which isn’t exactly a climatological picnic either?
