Canada winters are nothing if not predictable. Foreign to southern climes, single-digit temperature readings are fairly customary in North America's northernmost country. Yet despite this, not a season goes by in which Mother Nature doesn't surprise even the heartiest Canadian souls of the extreme degrees its capable of.
That's certainly been the case this winter. Environment Canada has issuedseveral extreme weather warnings, predicting bone-chilling temperatures of -30 degrees and -40 degrees Celsius in some instances.

There aren't many sure things in life, but if you're living in Canada, you're virtually guaranteed to experience snow in some form or another. Some years are more snow-filled than others, but you'd be hard pressed to find a winter in recorded history where there wasn't at least one storm that required shoveling.
If no one had a place to go, the "let it snow" holiday song would ring true. But because everyone has somewhere where they need to be, the white stuff's removal is necessary. This is also the case if you're a homeowner, because depending on how busy of a wintry weather season it's been, your roof could be feeling the effects – and not in a good way.

It's the 30-year anniversary of the classic 1980s film "Back to the Future," the first of the three-part trilogy. As you may remember, Marty McFly is transported through time to 2015 via Dr. Brown's DeLorean to find that the world had changed quite a bit, particularly in the way of technology.
While we may still be a few years away from self-drying vests and hover crafts, automated vehicles – which were featured in the series' second installment – may not be too far away from becoming a reality, based on a new forecast from the Conference Board of Canada.
