Oh, the irony

You know, the Olympics are happening in 33 days and Vancouver's one of the warmest places in North America right now. Seriously!

Vancouver's currently 10°C or 50°F.

Compare this to:

New York City: -3°C / 27°F
Atlanta: 0°C / 32°F
Orlando: 6°C / 43°F
Denver: -1°C / 30°F
Edmonton: 3°C / 37°F
Calgary: 6°C / 43°F
Minneapolis: -8°C / 17°F
Knoxville: -2°C / 29°F
Dallas: 3°C / 38°F
Boston: -1°C / 30°F
Cleveland: -7°C / 19°F
Raleigh: 1°C / 34°F
New Orleans: 3°C / 37°F
Toronto: -4°C / 25°F
Montreal: -6°C / 21°F
Chicago: -8°C / 18°F
San Francisco: 9°C / 48°F

Miami is actually the exact same temperature as Vancouver right now. Phoenix is only slightly warmer at 11°C / 52°F. Los Angeles is only a tad warmer at 15°C / 59°F.

But way to go Vancouver! I can't wait to see how many people arrive next month dressing for the stereotypical Canadian winter.

I was just thinking that over the weekend. I was wondering "Is winter over already?!"

But we're planning to go up Grouse this weekend for the first time. So that should be good!

Hopefully the snow's still in good condition! That's the downfall of this Pineapple Express.

BTW - I'm sure this isn't the end of winter, although it's hard to believe when it's currently 13 Celsius and everywhere else in Canada and the continental USA is colder!
