Yeah, but it’s a dry cold…

There are a lot of differences that I find living in the Southeast vs. in the Great White North.

For instance, this morning I awoke to two severe weather alerts, the first being a red flag warning (critical fire conditions) and the second being a freeze warning. Of course this is perfectly reasonable once you think about it for a little bit, but fire and ice are always referenced as diametrically opposed conditions.
