  12. most of canada gets snow at some time....my mate in calgary got ten inches of snow 8 weeks ago now....when we lived in calgary the coldest it got was a -34 windchill.... i think the thing is...here in canada it's a guarantee that snows on it way come winter so there prepared for it ie...snowplows, gritters, snow tires etc.... whereas the uk might get some one year and not the next..... my boss takes off snowmobiling around january for a week or so....he goes off for miles at a time.....
