There is definitely a lot more sun in the twin cities in the winter than in Toronto. When I first moved to Vancouver everyone said that one of the drawbacks from having such a mild winter was that it was grey and rainy all winter. While it doesn't rain that much in the winter in Toronto, it's definitely very grey.

You guys in WNY probably also got a lot more snow than Toronto.

Yeah, probably right. Being on the south side of Lake Ontario and the east side of Lake Erie, WNY gets barraged in the wintertime. Lotta people think that the farther north you go, the more snow you get, but not in that part of the world!

i would think minneapolis is more variable because it isnt surrounded by the great lakes
so the extreme highs in the city during the winter are probably about the same but minneapolis probably gets much colder
The winter is probably about the same length but it might come a week or two earlier

Yea but you guys south of Lake Ontario get warmer weather and warmer nights. your Hardiness level for plants is 6 and 7 that's great for framers in that area.

But on the North Shores of lake Ontario like eg. Toronto the plant hardiness level ranges from 5b on the shores and hardiness level 5 and 4 in suburbs and rural areas around Toronto.

I found that intresting because we are only about 40 miles apart and the hardiness levels change drastically.

The constantly changing barometric pressure in MN used to give me daily sinus pain and headaches. Then I moved to Colorado.
