Winter is 59.8% over

According to Environment Canada, Montreal has on average 79.54 days of freezing weather per year. By the end of January, on average, Montrealers will face 47.6 days of sub-0 weather. That tells me, by the time February rolls around, winter is 59.8% over. (By sub-0, I mean the daily high is below 0)

Aren't you glad you have me around?

Also, to settle a wager with Vinny: Vinny claimed that Feb is both the coldest and snowiest month of the year. I claimed that January was the coldest and agreed that Feb was the snowiest. It turns out January is the coldest, but December is the snowiest! So I'm only half-right. But still right enough to gloat. Nyah.

Meanwhile, Vancouver gets 4.29 freezing days a year. Assholes. Their winter, if you can even call it that, is 91% over.

Weird. According to, January is both the coldest and snowiest. I prefer snow cover for my definition of snowiest rather than snow precipitation. In any case, I'm wrong (though in my defense Feb and March are typically the only 2 months with snow cover >= 50cm). I guess by the time February rolls around I'm just fed up and everything feels worse.

I'm beginning to think I have the winter blues.
