I live in Canada. We call it the Great White North because of its annual covering of snow. In my part of Canada, that lasts three or four months.
We do have warm weather for five to seven months of the year. We also usually have one to four months of shoulder season, times when nights are chilly and days are cool.
These weather patterns aren’t exclusive to Canada. The northern states share my latitude and weather. But I’m not writing an exotic travelogue here.
