Funny! (But so untrue! It hits 10 degrees celcius and I'm shivering and have the heat turned up! But then, I'm a 'spoiled' Torontonian, we rarely get anything below -20 - they were making fun of me in Alberta over the holidays because I couldn't handle their -25 and below weather! ).

And here in "Lotus Land" this morning, we have a snowfall warning (which would make most of the country laugh -- but WE'RE not laughing )

This was so funny!

Yes, I heard that "Lotus Land" was getting snow today when I talked to someone from BC Hydro earlier.

Our temperatures here in Toronto and area haven't been bad so far - around the -2 to -6 C mark. Actually it was funny, because yesterday on my way to work I was sitting waiting for a long light and I was so warm in the car I had to roll both side windows down to get a cross breeze to cool off the interior. I had turned down the temperature but it just seemed really warm. I DID NOT drive with them down though!
