I’m about 20 miles north of where polarbrainfreeze is located (Orleans part of Ottawa area).
Don’t you mean about 32.2 kilometers north?
Old habit die hard.
Interestingly enough, I prefer referencing in celsius for low temperatures and fahrenheit for high temperatures. As in it is currently 82F here at the cottage in the Gatineau.
Yeah, I’m the same way. I think it’s because my parents winter in Florida.
For cold temperatures, -10C sounds so much colder than 14F. The negative gives it this extra “oomph” of cold. Makes us sound tougher that we brave such temperatures.
I also don’t know my height in cm or my weight in kg. I still work in feet/inches and pounds for those.
Aye, this is the problem of growing up around the time of the Imperial/Metric transition. I recall (although, barely) when I was a child and Canada switched.
I just try to remember “2.2lb in a kg” and “3.3ft to a meter”… and try coping with it from there.
Hey, no matter which scale you use: -40 is cold!
Unfortunately there’s not going to be any on-site pickups. I’ve asked Dan a few times as things have changed over time, and it’s pretty clear that they won’t allow people to do pickups.
I meant drive to NY state. Such as 1000 islands or whatever the cross over is.
Yeah, I used this site to get a US address. http://myusaddress.ca/
It’s just an hour from Ottawa.
I just added my pin to the map - sending greetings from Nelson BC - I am also looking forward to my glowforge arriving - hoping to do some cool stuff with topographic maps and ski resorts
Calgarian here – it’s the painful part of looking at the banner, realizing the queue has blown past your day and being so close but still so far away…
