    The average weather for a Boston winter day is around -4. During the summer it gets up to 24 or 25. But where I used to live in Ontario, the averages were 2 degrees for winter and 20 in the summer. So nothing that cold.

    I don't find teams sports particularly entertaining. I never watch hockey at home. I'll go to see it, because it is an event.

    I'll cheer for whoever is winning because they deserve the cheering

    I actually dedicated my whole day to watching hockey (4 games over 10 1/2 hours), so I'm pretty excited that it's back. Somehow, I started cheering for the New Jersey Devils when I was about 4, and they've always been my favorite team. I'm a bad Canadian, I know. I could just never see myself cheering for the Canucks, even though they're the hometown team (I do have a soft spot for the Calgary Flames, though, as half of my family is from there and cheers for them).

    It was hailing a few hours ago and it was super strange. My American roommate was surprised to see us so amazed by the hail because it doesn't happen often here at all. He was also confused because apparently hail in South Carolina is almost always an inch or bigger whereas we were insisting the small pellets tonight were hail as well. We nearly mistook this for snow but then realized it was far too warm for snow and it accompanied a thunderstorm so it was more likely to be hail. Does anyone else remember getting hail much at all? I think it's more common in warmer atmospheres (so further south) and I don't think I've ever seen a piece of hail that was even golf ball-sized, nevermind bigger.

    It was pretty neat but I wish it would just hurry up and snow again here. T_T; I hate the fake spring Southern Ontario got last week. Now it's just muddy and icy everywhere and my walk to the bus sucks.

    LEAFS because they're my Dad's team so I grew up rooting for them too. And they're undefeated thus far in the season, too! I was so confused when I checked the score last night and saw they'd beaten the Canadiens. :P Then again, I think they started off fairly well last year too and it didn't last long.

    I don't have TV though and I'm not much of a hockey fan. I'll pay attention if a Canadian team makes it to the finals and I'll watch Olympic games or international tournaments if I'm visiting my parents or something but I don't go out of my way.

      I was coming from Toronto Airport this summer with my grandparents and it just all of a sudden started pouring rain. There was thunderstorms and marble sized hail too; it was pretty crazy.
      I can never bring myself to cheer for the Maple Leafs, despite being from Toronto. I cheer for the Bruins instead.
      In they Olympics, however, I ALWAYS cheer for Canada, even if they're playing the US. So that makes up for it, I guess. x)

        I watched the Senators (I live in Ottawa so yeah) spoil the Jets home opener 4-1. Tomorrow I'm off to our home opener vs Nashville. \o/

          That's the thing about hockey in the US. People in the south (i.e. Nashville, Phoenix, Tampa Bay) don't care at all about hockey, since they never get cold weather. Even most of the people up here in Boston don't really care about the Bruins.

            Oh, a Canadian Club? How perfect! :D

            As for hockey, I'm still going for Toronto, as it's kinda where I live. As of what I've heard so far, they won against Montreal. I haven't really paid much attention to the NHL as of late, because they just got off of what I'm going to call the strike. Other than Toronto, I'll root for Calgary and Boston.

            When I watch Hockey, I always hope that Montreal loses LOL.

            And for our weather, this week we're hitting -25°C to -36°C. Hurray... >.

              I meant to ask, which province is your favorite? That way I can put you down on the main page as a member. I assume its Ontario, but I just want to be sure.
              Also we are getting slammed with a snowstorm tonight, in terms of weather. Shoveling will be fun.

                Oh, if you could put Ontario, that'd be fine.

                Speaking of snowstorms, we had one a while ago, but now it's warming up a lot. It went from -21°C to 2°C.
                All the snow is gone. I was going to get to shovelling it, but it all melted.

                Better shovel all the slush away before it hardens into ice. :x

                Haha, so the weather last week went from -40°C to -7°C. In Canadian weather -7°C is GOOD :D

                Anyone care to hit the beach? x)

                  I'll be honest. I've never been to a proper beach in my life. Ever.

                  Well you been to the lakes around Canada I presume? If so. It's better to stay there haha. The beach that are connected to the ocean are utterly digusting, water salt that actually taste like it. Nasty stuff '

                    I live 20 minutes from the ocean, so I go in the summer sometimes, but its still like 15 degree water. And with all the sand that gets caught literally everywhere its not really worth it. :(

                    I found out at work, that as of yesterday, most Canadian businesses and banks have officially stopped giving out pennies, instead rounding your totals out to the nearest 0 or 5 (whichever your total is closer to). I personally don't mind, as I use debit where the final total won't be affected, but I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks about this. It seems from the people I've talked to, it's basically been a 50-50 split for or against it.

                      Its funny you bring this up, becauseI stumbled across this Youtube video a while ago, and it was about the same topic.
                      I think its great idea. Nobody actually uses pennies, so I think its a good way for the government to save some cash. Its not worth spending 2 cents to make a 1 cent coin. Now if only America would do the same.

                      Because the money generated to make pennies actually cost more than what the pennies are worth

                      And me being a debit user, I won't get some discounts from the round ups sometimes lol

                      But it sucks that it's being rounded if you buy something that's like 2.96, you'll have to pay 3$

                      I used pennies often. I pay in cash when I can and like to give exact change so I can get rid of my excess change and not have to break a bill if I don't need to.

                      But, it makes sense to get rid of it. So, bye bye penny.

                      My girlfriend used her pennies a lot lmao. When she could give the exact change, she would use her pennies

                      Also when I heard that pennies were not going to be used anymore, I gave all my pennies to the bank. I got myself 9$, yay
