Life in Canada, weather, humor, and more
Several years ago, I found this gem on Usenet. Someone was saying that they were moving to Canada, and they were asking where to buy electronics in Canada, via mail order from the USA or where.
Someone asked: I'm about to move to Canada shortly and I want to know where do Canadians go buy softwares and hardwares? Would you prefer mail order to buying it from the stores? For mail order, would buying from a US company be cheaper than buying from a Canadian company? Thanks for the info.
To which Brad Ball, in true Canadian humor (rather humour) replied:

Another cold spell, or rather more deep freeze. Temperature as I type this (Thursday 15 January) is -23 Celsius. With wind chill factor, it feels like -32, with risk of frost bite.When I was leaving work, there was this frost on the inside of the car's windshield. This is very annoying. Had to scrape it off with an old CD that I keep in the glove box for this purpose. I had this happen to me two years ago. It is on days which are very cold, and very sunny.
