I may be bored, or mad from hearing other prairie-types bad mouthing Winnipeg winters (only we are allowed to do that), but I was just spending some time looking at weather statistics. Here are my conclusions:
Calgary: Ok, they can brag a little. Seems winter is not so cold there. Damn chinooks.
Edmonton: Have us by a hair, but not really much to brag over.
Saskatoon and Regina: They got nothing to say at all. Same as Winnipeg.
And before you Vancouverites start getting all smug, check out this one:
January hours of sunshine: Winnipeg - 120; Vancouver - 55.
And here's one for the gang back home. Thiruvanantha, India: January avg - 27 degrees; August avg - 26 degrees. Hours of sunshine, January - 263.
