  12. It's pretty good, and true to a certain degree. I mean, the first day it hit 5C here, I was out in my t shirt with my window down in the car.
  13. Thats awesome :) And so true. Although the last couple days over here have been terrible. So much snow :(

    60 Degree Fahrenheit Canadian dies from third degree burns to the skin.
  16. That's my favorite myth about Canada--that it's only cold here. Summers here regularly get to 35+, up to 40 with the humidex, sometimes past (although not extremely often where I live).

    100+ to you Americans. :p
  17. Fun fact about Alberta weather: It changes every five god damned minutes!! It hit 27 above last sunday, and It snowed about half a foor here yesterday. I just dont get this place at all.
