There sure is a big difference between S. W Ontario and Eastern Ontario.  Being just north of the far eastern end of Lake Ontario, we still get the humidity, along with colder winters :)

A Georgia Cracker by birth, I grew up in high humidity and hot temperatures.  I'm not going to say it never bothered me at all but I will say I was completely used to it and preferred it to even "moderate" cold.  I have enough photos of me with deer on the ground to to show most anybody the Georgia climate and how it varies from the southern end to the northern end.  In the Atlanta area & up it is usually more moderate than the coastal plain & piedmont where a t-shirt is fine in the November deer woods and often in December. 

Virginia was pretty cold and the first time I ever saw real snow.  In fact, although having been in Maine for three years the deepest snow I've ever experienced was in Va.  In Maine it snows more often but so far none of the chimney-burying depth of central Va.  Each year there is less and less snow in our part of Maine; winters start later and end sooner now than when we finally moved here for good a few years ago.  And the ticks; I thought they'd gotten bad in Georgia the past 20 years or so, but NAH!  Up here the total weight of all the ticks outweighs the total of ALL other animal species I am sure.

The record low for Michigan is -51 F in February 1934.That is pretty close to southern Ontario no matter how you look at it.

Seems the older Taylor and I get, the more picky we are about our shooting weather. ;)
