When I got up this morning, it was -17° F (-27° C), and it's remained below zero all day. In a nearby town in the Adirondack mountains (an hour away) it was -36° F (-38° C).

Boston has been getting pounded with snow lately. Although, when I lived there (Easton and Waltham, 1996-1999), I remember a storm that dumped snow so suddenly it trapped hundreds of people in their cars right out on 495 and 128, and then waking up the next day to three feet of new snow (that probably was Winter '96 - '97).

Colder than I like, yes. Supposedly 34 out, but I cannot confirm (NOAA is often wrong).

I've thought about moving back east, but this winter has made me reconsider.

At the summit of one of the local ski areas (Smugglers' Notch), the wind chill today was -76° F (-60° C).

That'll perk your nipples right up (right after it freezes your eyelids shut).

It's not that bad with good winter clothes, we've seen worst and, frankly, I hate hot summers more than I do hate cold winters.
I prefer tempered weathers, ~15° C dry with nice shiny sun.

Still, I really do enjoy to have half-year cold climate:

- less vandalism (kids don't roam outside for 'fun' night-long)
- less weird bug-transmitted diseases (i.e. ticks -- we have no ticks here)
- we know how to drive in slippy/icy conditions (I should bring wswartzendruber here someday ;-) )

Where in Canada are you? I'm an hour South of Montreal just across the U.S. border.

I wish it were colder, it's probably around 24-25 deg C right now. I hate warm climates.

Sorry, I didn't mean to touch a nerve. I have no interest in the Francophone vs Anglophone politics of Canada.

Many of the locals where I live have what is locally referred to as a "French Canadian" accent. By that, they simply mean "Francophone". Believe it or not, this is only partly by virtue of proximity to Quebec, and mostly because the area was originally settled by Habitants and the accent and patterns of speech have been handed down across generations as the colloquial dialect of English.

Usually, "Quebecois", "Quebeckers" and whatever refers to the province of Quebec usually cast a shadow of association with the left-wing "separatistes" psycho-socialists neurotics ecolo-naïves weirdos who think they are "artistes", hating and insulting anyone who doesn't share their sect beliefs.

I definitely don't want to be linked in any way with that.
