It was 23 degrees in Toronto today.. Go figure Canada is a large country where temperatures vary.. OMG - SHOCKING... OMG SHOCKING I was referring to the GTA where I live when I was speaking to Karasmatic who also lives in the GTA.. No offense to Vancouver or Calgary but a cool September day there doesn't impact my life. They are as far away from me as Havana and Mexico City.

April to May gets increasingly warmer just as October to November becomes increasingly cooler but they aren't exactly cold or freezing cold months either.. As I said, Canada is a big country - locate southern Ontario on a map and find Toronto.. Use the same line of latitude that Toronto is on and go due east and due west - which country directly borders us on our line of latitude both sides? - HINT its not our own country....



Well relatively speaking they aren't year round hot cities but like Toronto I wouldn't classify them as cold across the board.. Not sure how anyone can discount a place that is warm to hot half the year as cold..
Well I guess we have a difference of opinion on what is warm then. 5-10 DEGREE weather is cool- cold to me.

Average temperature is useless. When you go outside you experience the temperature at that time only - not a seasonal or yearly average.. When I went outside today, I didn't say oh its cool because the 7 month average high temperature is only 15 C..

So when I went out today as I have for the last 4-5 months its been warm to hot.. When I go out in mid November its chilly and when I go out in mid Dec or Jan its cold when I go out in mid April its generally cool but mid May and its warm - but now with 21-23 c its very pleasant warm to hot.. That's all I care about.

Everyone is going to have there own preferences.. I went to Lisbon last year in February and the temperature during the day was 15 C.. It was perfect for me.. It wasn't too hot and left me with plenty of energy to explore the city (fantastic city btw) without constantly feeling parched... Now try going to Marrakech in the winter for some truly weird weather - you get 21 deg c during the day but at night goes down to almost 0 C.. It may be nice during the day but at night you need to put on a heater!

As much as I love S.E Asia - most of the year you go outside and its like entering into a blast furnace. I don't enjoy that at all and its would be tough to bear for me year round.. I guess i'd have to be born there and adapt to that - well sounds like a familiar tune doesn't it - that we sort of adapt to weather.

I'm not going to lie, I don't enjoy Toronto winters one iota but i'm not going to allow 4-5 months of weather I don't love to ruin my life lol - There are plenty of other aspects to life than 1/3 of the years weather sucking that I do like about where I live.. My sweet spot is between 15 - 22 deg and for me would be an ideal year round climate.

I would consider anything less than 5 deg to be cold.. Anything between 5-13 cool.. Anything between 14-20 warm and anything above 21 hot.. Anything above 27 and I just don't enjoy it - too hot and muggy for me.. I'm Caucasian though.

Fusion, no major city in the world is a frozen tundra year round.....take Moscow for example, it does have a warm summer....but you cannot deny that Toronto is a colder city than Los Angeles.....

There is a huge difference between humid hot and dry hot....try 25 degrees in Bangkok and 35 degrees in Austin....

I don't deny that Toronto is a colder city than L.A.. Its colder than most major cities in the world for 4 months of the year. With that said, its not cold all the time and I don't like year round hot to very hot and humid places.. I think S.F would be my ideal place for weather year round but again - weather is just one component of being happy where you live. I'm not going to slit my wrists over a cold Toronto winter.. You make the best of it and enjoy it and as with most things in life you take the cons with the pros.. For me where I live the pros outweigh the cons..

Its sort of when you marry someone, the things that annoyed you about them at first grow on you and you end up loving everything about them, even the things that aren't necessarily appealing.. Its a part of the whole package. If it bother you well - you need to evaluate the relationship you are in and change that but only you can do that.. I don't always agree with Mikeyyc in here but I respect the fact that he didn't like Canadian winters and actually DID something about it.. Most of us aren't like him though, they accept, adapt and enjoy the whole package.

I agree...in life is often all about opportunities....I did have the chance to live in a place with more pleasant weather and that satisfy me for other important aspects.
