With a lot of measurements, and Canada so being reliable on trade with the US, we still do lots of things using imperial measurements. Temperature is about the only one that is consistently metric around here.


Who freezes brine anyway?
It all makes sense unless you're not at sea level. At my elevation, boiling water is at 208.4 degrees C. Then, the simple 0 and 100 degrees C becomes more complicated!

It's either cold (turn on the furnace!) or it's hot (turn on the A/C or MaxFann), other than that... is it wet outside and do I need to put on rain gear? It's all good, I'm camping.

183 cm tall, and 95 kg in weight. Don't want to get shorter, but wanting to be under 90 kg though.

Though I do know these measurements in metric quite well ( I was just weighed at the hospital this morning as part of the monitoring of my HepC treatment), but as baglo is likely getting at, I (like most native Canadians) use imperial for height and weight most of the time.

6 ft 0 in, and 210 lbs.

One more vital measurement to remember.

Minus 40C = minus 40F

I'm not camping!

Some of us are trying to Escape winter.
Here is a good reference...

I notice that the map is changing from mostly blue to mostly red!

Never mind this post. When I re-read it, it didn't make sense. So,
I deleted it. Not thinking tonight; I really need a trailer in my driveway!
