Maybe because some of us are really proud of the cold weather we got? x)

And looking through the past number of posts here, it proves the old adage true that Canadians really do enjoy talking about the weather!
Yup.

As much as I always make fun of Southern Ontarians for being wusses when it comes to winter, when we actually get winter, it's so much worse than the prairie provinces. -20~30 in SK has absolutely nothing on even -10~15 in some parts of Ontario. Our proximity to the Lakes means that when it gets cold, we get a wet cold that sticks to you and seriously chills you to the bone. On the other hand, in SK (and AB? Been too long since I've been there for winter) I always remembered it didn't matter whether it was -20 or -30... it always felt the same because it was so dry. I mean, yeah, once you hit the occasional -40 or lower and cars just won't physically start, it's pretty awful, but walking around in that cold isn't bad at all.

Pretty much all of my extended family lives in SK and when one family came to visit once, they almost refused to leave their hotel room during a mild day because the cold was so different and they couldn't stand it. :P

It was kinda mild out last week when I was shovelling the drive way last. So, I didn't bother putting on gloves. Got a blister from it now XD Should have worn them anyway

I had to shovel my mom's driveway while I was there last week. :( It was horrible. I'm so, so glad I live in a townhouse complex where they do all that & salt for me... even if sometimes they do it at 2am (???) and keep me awake.

My neighbour shovels at that hour. Even if it is in the middle of a snow storm. Like... dude, it isn't going to make a difference by the morning

Actually, it's a looot easier to shovel snow several times instead of all at once when it's finished snowing. :( Snow is heavy! I'd much rather shovel a few inches two or three times than a foot all at once much later.

It was still a foot by the morning. Plus he's old. If he has a heart attack shovelling at 2AM no one is going to notice

That last one I should have shovelled early though yeah. It got icy/slushy/heavy unlike the big snow before that which was lite and fluffy and easy to move around.

I had the same problem. :( I get blisters really easily anyway, so it really wasn't smart of me to do that, but whatever.
And I'd rather shovel it all at once, imo its easier to just get all out of the way at the same time.

I'm not very strong so if I don't do it in parts, I sometimes can't do it at all. u_u

I've shovelled during our last big storm when the snow let up a bit, but was still snowing. A tonne had fallen and I did want to make it easier later.

But, it was day time when I did that. Not night, or 2AM, and not at the start of the snow when there was only like a cm on the ground XD My way makes more sense than my neighbour's.

The snow is finally getting around to melting here. Only problem is that it's as icy as hell now.

It rained here today and is set to the next couple of days. Mild out. The crystalized snow left in my backayrd shrunk in half today thanks to the rain.

Good catch Alakazam17! haha

It snowed here today. About a half a foot/15 cm. And it's still snowing.

I guess that I'm kind of a grammar nerd when it comes to Canadian English, hehe. I remember having to quote Wiktionary to an American friend just to prove that we spell 'yogourt' as such up here, which is something that is even different from British English! =3

On the topic of snow, we just another another coldfront and three centimetres of snow today in Ottawa. It's nothing compared to what we've had, it's just that we weren't expected any more snow. But it'll be melting away soon enough!

How long as been going at it, TF?

Yesterday it started to snow a bit and I was really depressed since it wasn't snowing for a couple of days and the snow was melting away. I went to downtown and when I finally came out of the mall, it stopped snowing and all the snow that was there, melted away. So I was pretty happy

It snowed for about 80 straight hours, stopped for about 5 or 6, then went back to snowing. I think it's stopped again, but The Weather Network says it all won't end until Monday. @__@

That's absolutely ridiculous. I mean, forcing people to learn another language just to use basic public services? Quebec is already the reason that the rest of Canada has to learn French (no offense to those in Quebec), and that's already bad enough, but this is absurd.

We don't really have to learn French, or English for that matter, though it's fun so you should try it anyway. But it seems like Francophones are more pressured into learning English. If anything that's why some want to pressure us into learning French. =/

It is, although it's not too bad to have a second language anyway. You never know when you'd have to use it.

That's true. Although what's going on right now is taking it too far.

You know what's worst? Is that the people that works in public transportation here can't even speak English properly for themselves. I'm not talking about everyone ofc. But you think that if you wanna work in the public transportation you should know at least English and french since it's the dominant language here, or you have to force everyone who have to take the public transportation to learn french just to buy tickets and ask for directions?

More like pretend to learn. We pay Quebec lip service.

Until Grade 9, my French education consisted of playing Bingo and learning about Bonhomme. I was vastly unprepared for Grade 9 French lol
