BTW, we can get snow here ( '96, anyone? ) - and if Whistler fits your geographic model - how does -5C and 547cm (215") sound? (cumulative)

That was the year the garden shed collapsed.

That expression is the favourite of those in Calgary, since the mountains do make the weather rather capricious. Of course, weather can change quickly across most of the Prairies, the only issue is that you can see it coming for miles (or hours) so it hardly catches you by surprise.

And no, when you live in Victoria, or Vancouver and environs, you cannot include Whistler in your geographic model.

I have been here for 9 days. The high temp has been 33 F and the low 20 F. The white stuff just keeps on coming. These pictures were from Saturday.

We're in Alfred, NY this week. There's at least a meter of snow here. Very convenient for sticking bottles of Champagne into snow banks.

For those cold "hoary nights" nothing beats a bottle of Snakebites in the snow. Take one 5th of Yukon Jack, drink about 2 fl. ozs. (to the top of the label) and replace with Roses Lime Juice. Chill to about 0 degrees F and swill directly from the bottle.' It will still be cold outside but you won't care!

That is the problem, people take me for one of the locals so my caché goes down. Besides, I expect to see some Americans in America, not a sub culture of my own.

* BTW I don't like being called 'dude'. Feeling younger these days?

Common European misconception. They're all Americans. Lots of subcultures, lots of regional diversity, and lots of languages. You'll see a Chinese looking woman walking out of an Indian restaurant carrying a pizza. And it was cooked by some guys with Spanish names and Mexican complexions.

I get ribbed by my coworker (his parents are from Taiwan) that he regularly eats really good Chinese food at many restaurants staffed only by Mexican cooks!
