    Cold does not bother me. It is the Daylight saving time change that gets me depressed. It’s so dark when one gets home after work.

    I don’t mind the Daylight saving time, because I feel that eventually it does not make much of a difference. However, the cold bothers me at the beginning. Once in the heart of winter, I am used to the cold.

    The only difference this yeas is that my wife and I both have our driving licenses. Now, the cold is a little bit more unbearable than before 🙂 That being said, I’ve survived 6 winter already…time flies.

    Well, at least you won’t have to worry that your car won’t start in Kitchener ( not as cold as Thunder Bay or some areas in Quebec). Reason, I hated Quebec city ( here in Mtl I have a garage) because I had to park on the street and when the mercury dips below -20 C and it is windy- one has to know how to start that car w/o flooding the engine.

    My worst experience was Thunderbay. Picked up a rental and could not open the driver’s side door – the smart clerk at the rental company had washed the car and left it in the parking lot ( -25 C without wind factor ) 😦

    Hi Dodo,

    Thunderbay? It’s cold there !

    When my wife and I were getting off the plane (her first time in Canada) in Frebruary 2003, it was -6˚C and she said: “It’s so cold.” My reply was: “That’s warm for February.” And the next day it was -25˚C 🙂

    Yeah, January and February are the worst months because the temp can dip suddenly overnight and one is caught the next morning in a sub-zero environment. We can have a sudden snow storm in these months also.

    Yes, it can be very cold in Thunderbay when it is windy. Remember it is further north from where you are.
