Coming to Canada from the US may not have been such a good idea. It just doesn't stop snowing up here, and talk about cold. -37 with windchill this morning. Can't wait until retirement so winters can be spent in the good ole USA, have always wanted to be a Storm Chaser.

yeah it's not like it's only Canada that has snow. The whole upperhalf of America gets snow & cold weather too.
I'm in Seattle, it's not snowing, but it's cold enough. Vancouver is not bad though for Canadian standards.

Dude, there is no one single temperature and weather for "Canada". Like the USA, it varies! If I go down into Vermont and it's -20, I don't proclaim that the USA is -20, do I? I'm just teasing you...

Anyhow, no snow in Vancouver today! It's 6 degrees Celsius (43 F) right now at 11:00am.

Compared to...

New York City, where it's -3 Celsius (26 F).
Boston, where it's -3 Celsius (26 F).
Washington DC, where it's -1 Celsius (30 F).
Minneapolis, where it's -12 Celsius (10 F).
Burlington VT, where it's -9 Celsius (16 F).
Chicago, where it's -7 Celsius (19 F).
San Francisco, where it's 9 Celsius (48 F).

Okay, San Francisco wins, but not by much!

Red face Ah..the west coast

Guess your fair city will be busy getting ready for Juno's and Winter Olympics. But you must admit, moving from sunny Birmingham, Alabama to Manitoba...first winter was sure a shock. And I think that once we are -40; that the states is -40 also? Never did get the drift of the celsius thing. I merely put a glass of water on the deck, if it evaporates - I put on less clothes. If it freezes - I put more clothes on. (joke). Oh..not a dude. Female

I believe that I'm becoming like a Canadian woman, whine a lot (joke). When I first got to Manitoba, thought it great. No tornadoes, no +110 degrees. Had an F4 tornado last summer (not to mention hail storm which broke the window out of my vehicle) and a couple of days +130 last summer with humidex. And does it rain in Seattle like they say? My relatives live near Olalla, Washington. Was out there couple years ago.

Oh wow, yeah, Alabama to Manitoba would definitely be a shock! Especially this winter, which has been colder than normal for absolutely everywhere in North America.

And I apologize, from a fellow "she", I take back my "dude" and will call you "ma'am".

It's been pretty cold here all winter too. Not unbearably cold but definitely one of the worst winters in the past 10 years.
