Exactly. And it's not like we're allowed to walk around town naked on a 95 F day.

South Florida winter is probably still warmer than spring, fall, and even most of the summer in Toronto (Southern Ontario bar Windsor). Given the choice, I too would choose South Florida over Southern Ontario (weather-wise). Yes, the 80s we're getting here during the 6 weeks of summer is probably nicer than their 100s, but I'd put up with 100s if it means not having to deal with the single digits and negatives, like ever.

You can ski, snowboard, ice skate, sled, snow mobile, hold winter festivals, etc. Fun activities for both children and adults.

Some places also rely on snow to supplement their water supply. So cold and snow are not completely pointless. Just depends on what you're into. Not only that, but a long cold winter makes you appreciate the sun, warmth, and plants much more during the warmer seasons.

It hasn't been cold in most areas at all so far so I don't know why anyone is complaining.

That is why we have this special season called 'summer'.

Some of the snowiest places in the world are in WA. All in higher elevations though. Actually, Eastern Washington has cold, snowy winters and hot, dry summers. Western Washington is just mild and wet, with a short semi-dry period in the summer.

I totally agreed with you. We have only 6 weeks of beautiful summer here in Toronto, from July to mid Aug.

It gets cool on Labour Day (early Sept) every year.

I am fed up with the cold weather in Toronto, Canada as a whole.
