    I may be looking at a change in locales in the next year or so. I'm wondering what is involved, and what my options are. Any ideas?

    The Southwest corner of BC gets very little if any snow, the weather here is pretty much identical to Seattle's weather (as a comparison).

    As for the rest of Canada...it's not like it's some frozen wasteland that never sees sun or warmth. There are 4 distinct seasons though, (not Drought, Fire, Flood and Earthquake like Cali either...)

    I have spent considerable time in Canada, already. The cool thing about the snow is that when it snows, it is just snow. None of the ice/snow/ice sandwich crap that I get here. Also, it seems that the road crews are generally prepared to take care of getting the snow off the road, so getting to work isn't all that bad.
    Besides, what is wrong with liking snow? That's why I bought a 4x4!

    I love it up here. I've never been farther east than Sask. but I know how beautiful it is here in the west. Here in the Okanagan valley we have very similar climate to California 3 seasons out of the year. 100+ degree weather in the summer is common. Then we get about 2 maybe 3 months of snow in town. It doesn't get overly cold either. Maybe down to -15C on a cold day.

    I highly recommend Canada /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Good healthcare too /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
