You don't understand. Your observations (above freezing March, only January and February truly being cold and snowy) were the norm for the last three decades of the last century (1971-2000).

Toronto has warmed a tiny bit according to the stats, but not much. You shouldn't be too worried about Tdot having the climate of Cincinnati anytime soon.

I have heard some people from warm countries say that Toronto is uncomfortable in the summer because of the humidity.

Your logic is like "I feel I am very poor because I only make $100K a year and can't afford buying a Porsche SUV and a Rosedale mansion. I don't care those who are really poor and can't even make ends meet around me. When I feel poor, I am poor."

Call me anything if you want. To say having 5 days over 32C is a hot summer, that's laughable. Sure you have the right to say how you feel about Toronto summer, so do I have the right to laugh at such comments.

Winters are way too cold. Better than Buffalo because there's less snow to shovel, and better than inland cities like Minneapolis, Syracuse, and Albany because cold snaps aren't as cold (rarely ever below -20 C in Toronto, though every idiot will disagree and quote the windchill). However I hate it when your ears and hands will freeze if you don't cover them, and snow stays for more than a week without melting. It would be great to have snow sometimes and temperatures slightly above freezing (snowman weather), like what you have in Philadelphia, NYC, and Boston, than the brutal cold with dry snow you see in Toronto.

Summer temperatures in Toronto are fine, the only problem is the humidity. I'd be fine with 32 degrees every day if it was dry like in northern California. But the humidity in Toronto is uncomfortable. I suppose it's better to be 27 degrees with high humidity than 35 degrees and high humidity like in Houston.

It's the humidity in the summer that kills me. I can't take it. It's like breathing in soup some days.

The cold winters you can atleast deal with. Just bundle up.

I haven't lived in Toronto ever so I won't vote, but I'm still weighing in since I visit frequently.

You should have added an option in between good and tolerable. I live 4 hours north and when I come in March, there's usually no snow while we still have a ton of **** to deal with up in Sudbury. I check the temps during mid winter often and I never find it really bad. I think if it averaged a few degrees warmer in the winter I would have no problems with it at all. I can see how most foreigners think it's a nightmare though.

The poll is closed - but 24 years in Toronto . . .read my "location" line . . . 'nuff said.

The only thing worse than Toronto's winters are its summers . . . humidity is soul-draining.

P.S. Can I pick cities with "interesting" mayors or what?
