I can't imagine living somewhere that cold.
I don't need heating or cooling in MY house.

Lucky you.

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. Cold weather and snow are definitely not fun when you're travelling to work and you have to be outside in the cold. But I really enjoy walking (or playing ) in the snow for a short while. A snowy landscape is just so beautiful ! Once you're inside again you can cuddle up in front of the fireplace with a nice warm blanket, drinking a cup of hot chocolate ...

It's 32F in Texas...I'm not complaining. It will warm to 60F later today...winter is the nice time of year here for the most part! When it's 108F not so much...

Looking at the stats it's obvious that Canada has a better education system that the US.

Don't you guys want to watch TV or something?


Out of Me, Myself, and I only I voted. Me & Myself want to vote also.

Can you help us DG?

I was in a way obliged by that man SOS to enroll as Italian, and that started a landslide of modifications, but I might as well have enrolled myself as French Canadian (as Yvan kindly invited me to), for more than one reason, not least the number of very happy winters that I spent in beautiful and very cold Quebec. Why I say this? But because we are starting to discuss Winter. It would be nice if one of the many Canadians would tell us about it, about its charms.

It's only the second time in my life I've seen snow. But I imagine I'll get used to it over the next few months. I've just come back from a walk across the sea ice to one of the nearby islands - just amazing! And now I'm back inside, no fireplace but I have the blanket and hot chocolate... :P

I think that it's really only a few Canadians, but that they're registering their kids to and making them vote.

I mean lets face it, most Canadians are out trapping beaver now, aren’t they?

Or sitting at home watching them freeze their a$$es off through the front window

My grandfathers house faced the Bay of Quinte. Everytime I visited him I couldn't help but make fun of those people out there in -30 degree weather fishing when the market was only 3 blocks away!
