Without the Snow
I live in Prince George, British Columbia. Pretty much, central BC winters are some times very cold, but that's why a long time ago someone, and I'm sure not an American. Besides I can go out and enjoy the sun in winter not like living in Seattle.
It's well known that Prince George is one of Canada's foggiest inland cities, with low winds. Even though it's cloudy most of the time, it has the driest and coolest summers and early snowfall.
The hottest temperature was 36° in May 1983 and the lowest was -50° on January 2, 1950. There are a few summer days over 30°C and a few winter nights below -30 each year.
