Not my home town, but I lived there for a year. And the year I lived there on february 8th or something like that it was recorded to be the coldest temperature on earth that day. -64 Degrees Celcius. That is too cold! I left later that year... haha. In the summer months it seems to average around the mid thirties.

Oh yeah, the city is > Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada)

Weather extremes? Yeah, extremely Hot and Humid.Always.
Average weather is like 25C/32C. I think i speak for most countries in S.E.A, unless u are in places of high altitude.

I'm from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia originally - the city known for having 4 seasons in one day!

Haha! I know how it feels having the same weather everyday... The Gold Coast (Queensland) has pretty much the same weather everyday - "Beautiful One Day, Perfect the Next" so goes the slogan... but now and then (like last week for example) I was complaining that it hadn't rained here and I wished that the weather would be different just so I didn't have that "nice day feeling" of having to go out and do something because the weather is so good. Does that make sense?

We have water restrictions here because it rarely rains (can only water the garden on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays for even numbered houses - the other days except Mondays for odd numbered houses, and then only between the hours of 4pm and 7am. Can only wash you car using buckets of water rather than a hose, watering the grass is strictly prohibited in some areas... things like that). While I understand and agree with having water restrictions I still like would like it to rain more often! I love it when it rains!
