Booklover, I'm in the middle of the province, also with 4 seasons. It is usually low humidity so it helps with the comfort levels, but not in summer where we get some real scorchers. We've been surrounded by forest fires as well which makes it really uncomfortable when hot & smoky. Tough on asthma! My husband is not tolerating the heat as he used to either & finally invested in a portable air conditioner which isn't perfect, but does help.

The stacked-up birds is cute.

Melinda (booklover) I love the photo! It's very sweet indeed!
Thanks so very much!

I just found this on the internet and thought it was sweet.

Patricia, I can't stand the heat either, and neither can my delivery-driver hubby.  We are at the very top middle of Illinois and have 4 distinct seasons, and I've always enjoyed that.  It is, however, changing lately which is nerve-wracking.

I can't stand heat, so fall/winter is just fine as long as it doesn't go too  far below freezing. We're good up to about -20°C, but after that we go out for groceries & that's about it. Mind you, with global warming, our winters aren't nearly so long, or severe, which is really not good in the long run.

You don't mind the winters, Patricia?
