That might almost be funny if A) it wasn't a variation on an extremely old joke and B) the part of the country I'm in is further south than 13 of your 50 states. Better work on that material before you take that show on the road. ;)

Maybe it's just a cliche joke that Canadians are tired of hearing considering that some Americans, in those northern states, actually get worse winters than we do. Anyone in New York, Michigan, Illinois, etc, gets it as bad, or worse than us.

Bloody Americans!!!

I always thought the prairies get the more snow than the mountains. Maybe I just suck at geography

The last snow I saw was the leftovers from an avalanche on the South Island (New Zealand). So much snow had piled up that it was still there in the valley floor in the middle of summer (temperatures around 18C)

It was cold and grey and snowy this morning, the first real snow of the year. Half snow, half rain for 5 minutes doesn't count as the first to me and we had that once a week back.

The prairies are colder and do get more snow. Our prairies = Montana, North Dakota. The Rockies, unless you're high up, they get it lucky. British Columnbia, like Washington, they get wet winters but hardly ever snow.

Wet winters suck. Give me either snow or sunshine. The sloshy inbetween stuff is just depressing.

Ooh, now you are implying that all Canadians are Quebeciennes. Watch this space for angry Ontarian resposes :lol:

Canadians don't play guitar, they play fiddle. Most of their spare time is spent clubbing... baby seals that is, if media is to be believed.

When not in a blood frenzy, they are busy making advances on other countries sovereign territory in the Arctic.

And here I thought this would be about how there's no difference in the weather when you're just across a lake from us.
