1. what are you wearing?
2. is it easy to take off?
3. and how is the weather where YOU live?
hot, cold, lots of snow?

thinking of visiting Canada, may consider moving depending on how things look if I make it.

there MAY be an opportunity for me to move & work from home, no matter where "home" is, so, Canada sounds like a fun place.

looking for the best weather in Canada.

thanks.

you can skip 1 & 2 if you are not a mutant :embara:

You are not allowed for 1 and 2

As for weather, well, pretty much all of Canada get snow for 5-6 months, but you get used to it. Best place to live? The one that feels like home to you.

so, how many rooms do you have available :love: :kiss:

was talking to Spot, a "vacation" may be in order, being of limited funds, my vacation would serve dual purpose, get to know a bit of Canada & see about a potential move.

Garage will do if you dont have room Frenchy:love:

I am a sheet metal designer BTW, so, Work if things dont work out may be something I would have to look for :embara:

One thing you need to remember is that most of the province where I live speaks French, which might be problematic in some regions. As for spare rooms, I don't have any, and I don't have a garage. But if you get to visit my neck of the woods, pack your snowshoes;)

1. Clothes
2. No
3. Cold, with snow, and daylight not extending beyond my standard work day.

You may want to consider the political leanings in each of the provinces too. We're a little different that in the states. :wink:

1. Lots of warm clothes.
2. Only if I have to launder to remove blood spatter. Not mine.
3. Currently, warming up to -10 C....but can easily get down to -55 C with wind chill during an Arctic Clipper...and can get up to 1.5 m of snow in a season easy. You may as well learn metric if you are thinking of coming here....best weather in Canada? I'm leaning towards the Okanagan valley, very warm in the summer, temperate in the winter, beautiful location (when it's not on fire, eh SpOt??)....but not cheap to move to. Definately worth a look though, I like the Kelowna/Westpoint area best, Vernon is nice but not as nice IMO.....wine making country out there, if that tells you anything about the weather.

As far as moving, and work and so forth, I'd take a close look at that as not all of Canada is doing as well economically as other places. In the past, I'd give Alberta the ol' 'Rah! Rah!', but it's not exactly booming here either, currently. No provincial Sales Tax though!! Rah! Rah! :)

I fixed that for you, I know that any Mexican 'Little Person' living in California has no clue what -60 F is!!

So what Co. are you looking at? if I may ask, and in what city?
