Our neighbours are here in Toronto for one year while the husband, an ENT specialist is doing a stint at a local hospital. Hailing from Australia, via Malaysia they have yet to endure winter. So it behooves me to be an ambassador of Canadian hardiness. I regale them with tales that begin with “Oh this is nothing, up north where my dad lives your have to plug in your car….” Or “It’s not really cold until your nose hairs stick together...” I predict that by late February they will be pining for sunny Adelaide, and really who could blame them?
