Weatherman say

One thing about living up North in this place. When the weather nice ya duz really appreciate it. And yes I would prefer to live in a place that warm all round like Buh-bay-dus but alas its not to be at the moment. Still when you living someplace like Toronto and you see the weather heat up to something livable after a cruelly cold and bitter winter it duz really change ya disposition and make you appreciate things a lil different.

When 30 Celsius is ya norm ya tend to take it for granted. Here bram we see 15C after a cold cold winter and we looking to celebrate; the shorts come out, the sunglasses and we feeling like we in de tropics.

And annuda thing ya duz realize and its strange cause you don't realize it til afterwards but during the winter people duz be real real scarce. It doesn't seem so at the time cause unless is big snowstorm you still see a fair amount of hustle and bustle in the everyday goings and comings during the winter and the subways and malls duz still be packed but once the nice weather hit even for a day you realize just how big this place is wid plenty plenty people as they just seem to come out of the woodwork, milling on patios and sitting on benches and just trying to capture as much of the suns precious rays as possible. If I din know better I would swear that in spring people duz split and multiply and bloom like de flowers in the garden.

But that is how it is. When sunlight scarce ya appreciate it that much more when you do get it I think. We Caribbean people at home doan appreciate it so. It duz be like "cheese on bread why the sun gotta be suh hot this marnin um is 9 o clock an i sweating already" meanwhile a fella like me duz be up hayso bundle up in summuch fur jacket that people mistaking me for de Yeti.

Anyways doan worry we Canadian people (good gosh dem assimilate me an got me referring to a "we" now. help muh nuh) gine soon start complaining juss ya wait an see. Come it hit 25 and 30C next month or month after next all dem gine start saying well at least when um cold ya can put on layers but when um hot ya cant tek off ya skin and dem gine be cussing sun and killing electricity wid de aircon at negative numbers trying to recreate fridges in their homes and offices. But dat is people fa ya, never appreciate nuttin uh. cha!

Not me though, nuh complaints bout heat fa me, I look forward to my 30C, I wish it was so everyday.

It seems the warm weather triggers the "get outside" hormone intrinsic to people who live in colder regions, lol! I guess we all appreciate things more when we have to do without it for a while.

boy... i don't know eh... maybe i'm not appreciatin what i have or something... BUT... i rather freeze than sweat any day... i experienced winter and snow and all that 5 times in my life - three times it was extended (ie i went from autumn to spring) and twice was on holiday... so yeah... gimme the cold...

you ever hear that story bout the sun and the wind havin a bet? they bet who could make a man get rid of his clothes best... well... the wind try and blow it all off, but the man only clutch it closer to him cos he was so cole... the sun, on the other hand, just had to beat down on the poor man and he was soon stark naked and jumpin into a pond... and the poor fella was still hot...

I will say this: Places with nice weather have other issues.
Florida - Hurricanes
California - Earthquakes, forest fires
Arizona - People who think voting for McCain is a good idea.
Texas - Texas.

it's true - unless you're into skiing and skating an other winter sports - no one wants to be out doors when it's cold! and i can't wait for the consistent warm weather to hit - no complaining from me when it get's 'too hot'. more layers will just come off and i stay in the shade!
