In that link, the illustrious media source David Phillips says this will be the first non-white Dec 25th in Thunder Bay in history . I mean, what's this country coming to?

I'd pop out and take a photo of the backyard, but it's darkish right now. Last time I was out for a smoke (see footnote) a few minutes ago it was +9C. (Roughly 52F in case dbd33 stumbles across this thread).

That's a crazy warm temp. for this date.... but I knew how warm it was across the country. I have Star Choice TV here in Cabo. I enjoy seeing the snow in the streets (on TV), as I look out at the pool.

... isn't dbd with his horse at this time of night?

Well it's not all that warm everywhere...

I also prefer snow on TV to the shovelling stuff. But I can't afford Star Choice.

Actually, I don't shovel anymore. I blow the white powder.

I stopped shovelling too and used a plow on a 6X6 before I moved to sunnier climes.

I think the temps across Canada are well above normal - well for most of the country.

Either you are out of my class, or my weak double-entendres were lost on you. I hope it's the former.

Back to the original thread here..........!
Its not snowing here in Whitby (Toronto east) either, but apparently it is minus 1 in London, UK which made me giggle! My mates keep asking me if it is snowing yet...had to point out that our temps. are higher than theirs at the mo.
No doubt that will change over the coming weeks, must be honest and say that me and the kids would have liked to of have a white Christmas .. its our first in Canada ...maybe next year!

I got your meaning, I was able to bench press 320 pounds when I was in grade 11.

Welcome to the ueberthread sam/stu. Kids and white christmases do sort of go together, don't they? And you are right about the gloating window vis-a-vis London being rather limited. (although not as limited as for Cabo).
