Cold Weather!

Only one of Canada's Seasons

Only one of Canada's Seasons

It has been so cold in Canada right now. The coldest day of the winter so far has been -32. There has been a lot more snow too. It has bin a bitter winter for us Canadians. I'm getting so fed up with winter. It has been one of the coldest and lots of snow fall this year.


Yes Canada does have summer. We get summer for two or three months. It is warm temperatures to because your in the city more then anything. It gets very humid here in the summer time.

I live in Canada but I never been to any other northern place other then Canada.

Antarctica is cold but I have never been there.

I do check the weather forecast everyday so that way I know what the weather is going to be like for the day and how to prepare for it.

I have not looked at Environment Canada for warnings or watches. I usually look at the WeatherNetwork.

I don't think Environment Canada would be a good place to check for weather updates.

Barry's Response - Well, Thanks. Canadians can get used to the cold. That's what makes us tough. Weather enthusiasts like me check out EC and TWN's unique weather products regularly.

Recently, I've also used observation maps at weather underground, wunderground.com and weather & climate graphs at weatherspark.com - very handy resources.
