    I’ve heard all of these before, but they were You Might Live in Wyoming If….. They all hold true for here as well.

    Heck…I live in Canada and -2 would be warm on most winter nights.

    Heck, most of these could apply where I live in NH!

    I live in Denver. Four years ago, had to drive to a funeral in Winnipeg the end of December. Bank displayed -36. Icicles formed horizontally on the truck antenna.
    Now, whenever it’s cold here, we say “Well, it isn’t Winnipeg cold.”

    What this misses is that Detroit is directly north of Windsor, Ontario. So a Canadian vacationing south of Detroit would be at home! (Used to live in Windsor. Took me a while to wrap my head around this.)

    Some of these apply in Texas, I’ve had the heat on, then the air, then the heat. I know people who have hit more than one deer. We measure distance in hours, the first half of our vacation is spent trying to get out of our state, bad if you’re driving.I do know how to use jumper cables and have a set for every vehicle I own.
    I will freely admit most of us don’t know how to drive in snow, we’ve never had to learn, if it snows here, they close the state.

      That’s what I was thinking, too. Change the metric km to mph you’d be hard pressed to tell where we talking about. Though, if this is truly from a Canadian,
      then saying “If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching…” and mixing metric measures with feet shows that the Canadians are just as confusing (or adaptable?) as their neighbors to the south.

  • It’s 58 degrees Fahrenheit here today and it’s a bit chilly.

    I’m wearing a sweater.

    Damn.

    Most of these statements explain why I live on the west coast of Canada…most everywhere else is a little insane because of the weather. I was born in Saskatoon and when you consider the daily temp can vary from -45C (with wind chill) in the winter to 40C in summer, it’s little wonder I was happy to leave as soon as I finished college!! I don’t need A/C in the summer and don’t even own a winter coat out here. YAY!
