Its not a matter of believing its 'normal' - its a matter of being here for decades and understanding that a 10 cm snowstorm in April is not the norm. Its an outlier. You've been here 7 years, that is not a lot of time.. That said, cold weather in Toronto in March/April than what you would like is a fact of life. Do you really think I wouldn't prefer 15 or 20 deg c in March and April - of course but I've come to accept that where i'm from ie home it isn't going to be what I want regardless of how much I stomp my feet and complain about it. I'm not under any illusion that a snowstorm in April is pleasant. I'm fighting the flu right now would love to kick winter to the curb every bit as much as you do. Difference is, I accept that this is our reality - you I dunno lol..

I told you before - take a strategic vacation.. You went away at Christmas during/right after we had a mild Nov/Dec.. If you went away in Feb or March you'd be a heckuva lot more chillax than you are now. I know your patterns of protests and its cuz you're frustrated like a baby with gas who needs a burp

Two months from now you'll be right as rain lol..

Doesn't sound like much of a reward after a winter where it's 5 and grey and rainy.
Yeah in my Flu like stupor I accounted avg as max which is not the case.. In any event a handful of 22 deg c days in the summer is not ideal and after a dull, grey, cold, rainy winter isn't much of a reward indeed.. I could live in Edinburgh though, simply because it is a fantastic city and I love my people. I was just trying to make a point to Deneb that there are many places that are not ideal weather wise and Edinburgh is not really one of them. Walking the streets of Denpasar for more than an hour any time of the year is not exactly pleasant to me either - akin to being in a wet sauna.. You're looking to find a pool, beach or air conditioned mall sooner rather than later to get relief.

I'd find Denpasar a very nice climate... could walk around all day outside enjoying the sultry tropical air and enjoying the sites... and no freezing temperatures ever

The Okanagan is dry in the summer, but not as dry as Victoria.

BTW: There is desert in Canada, but Osoyoos is not a desert: https://questioningthedata.wordpress...y-true-desert/

I know plenty enough people even in Indonesia and places like Thailand (lots prefer cooler Chiang Mai to Bangkok hot/humid concrete jungle) and they wouldn't necessarily categorize enjoying the 'sultry' tropical air... Enjoying the sites is one thing (Denpasar btw is not the most impressive place to enjoy the sites of Bali) but I wouldn't say walking in an oven through concrete streets particularly idyllic.. For that I would recommend going a bit north to Ubud and further north through the rice plains and into the mountainous regions of Bali. Our guide was happy we were going to the mountains for some welcome cooler relief.. My favourite place in Bali was Puru Ulun Danu Baratan.. The most impressive Hindu temple in the most idyllic lake within the mountains.. Much nicer weather than Denpasar as well as less drunk Australians in fake a** Kuta/Denpasar.

Don't bother with Luwak Kopi (coffee) - totally overrated and barely distinguishable from regular Balinese Kopi. You pay 5 times more just for a Civet to crap out the coffee beans - boo!

All that said, Yogyakarta is a far more magical place than anywhere in Bali (except maybe Trunyan - which is morbid but utterly fascinating).. I heartily recommend going to Borobudur and to the active volcano Mt Merapi.. Be sure to visit the museum (you can only get there by jeep through some pretty rugged terrain) and see the cow/rooster skeletons that were the only remaining parts of these animals after the hot ash seared the flesh from their bones after the eruption of 2010.

Sounds like you should move to Vancouver

We're having a slightly unusual late storm system in SoCal. It's about 17 C in Vancouver and 16 C in San Diego. Big deal.

Sure, you can always find a random day in which San Diego is slightly cooler than Vancouver, but you'll never find a day in which it's 22 in Vancouver and 3 in San Diego. You will, however, find many, many days that are the opposite.
