Those are some of the exact places I've dreamed about living in.

I was suprised because many Canadians would consider 58 F barely warm, if even warm at all.
Almost everyone I've met here either grew up in a cold climate, or has spent at least a decade in ours.

In Toronto our annual average high is only 52 F.
Half the year is colder than 52 F, 24 hours a day.

Given our averages, it is considered by every sane person () that it the weather is totally unacceptable, 24 hrs a day, 6.5-7 months a year to have a picnic where you sit outside and eat for maybe 20-30 minutes. I grew up in this climate where I've had events like picnics and parties post-oned for 7 months for 26 yrs. In just my 26 years, I've probably spent more time waiting for it to be "warm enough" than you've spent breathing.

At least in hot weather, the day could be miserable, but that doesn't (usually) mean terrible weather for sitting outside, 24-hours-a-day.

More than likely, early morning, late evening, or at least midnight is not uncomfortable to be outside for most people.

I've been wondering if any of that bad weather would materialize. TWC was saying it'd start out in the Tx./Ok area and would spread to Ms., Ala., and Ga. I hope everyone is ok. I haven't even had a chance to watch TWC today at all.

looks like the storm that brought us hail and a small tornado here moments ago has moved to our SE.

What's causing this storm? Is there a sharp cold-front nearby?

Usually that's what triggers them, however at the moment Toronto is milder than average, so you probably didn't get the cold from us.

There is a cold front up in TN, but it's not really "sharp" but i guess it's the moisture from the Gulf and the fact that its 60 degrees, you get moisture and mild temps, and voila you got prefect severe weather situation.
