Some truth to that.

Very funny, as I have Canadian friends I totally understand.

By comparison us Sydney siders are wimps, it goes something like this.

10 C (50 F) Damn it's cold, it must be the middle of winter
7 C (44.6 F) Man it's freezing, it must be snowing, I bet the snow is a metre deep outside (it never snows in Sydney)
6 C (42.8 F) I can't stand this cold any longer, what's wrong with this heater it only goes up to 10. Honey can you book us a flight to Queensland before we turn into blocks of ice?
