It will start warming up in April...the winter clothes will start to go away once the temps consistently stay in the 50's during the day. lol
You're right, cold is all relative. For example, I live in the coldest city in the world...with a population over 600,000. It's known colloquially as 'Winterpeg'.

Right now , last time I checked (this am) it was -27 C.

Ford has a big facility in my province to do their cold weather testing on their vehicles. If a vehicle can survive a winter here...it can survive anywhere.

But frankly, I find sometimes incessant cold periods (weeks) of -25 to -35 C get's to be too much. Even dressed for it it's still too cold at times.

At these times I would rather be in Arizona, during the winter.


But our summers are hot and our spring and fall are beautiful, albeit short.

I escape winter after Christmas, rent a small condo in Florida, This practice has prevented me from getting a DA*300 or a K3 so I suffer with my K30 and DAL 55-300 but shooting in warm weather.

...It is better to burn a roll of film than curse the darkness. Equip. K30, Q7, DA PLM 55-300, DA 18-135, DA 35 f2.4, DA 50 f1.8, SMC-M 28 f3.5, SMC M 50 f1.4, Canon P&S S100 w/CHDK Beta, Panasonic DMC-GM5, Flickr:

I was so busy fighting mother naure for the last 8 hours that I could only take some images from my cell phone

Compared with lesmore's locale Toronto has really balmy weather

Can both of you please send half of that snow out west? Please? I'd rather take these pictures than water/fire retardant dropping helicopters working in the summer, and I'm sure you would LOVE to get rid of it!
