On February 19, 2009, American President Obama came to Ottawa to meet with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.  The President left his Washington 7 degrees, but arrived in Ottawa’s -10 (windchill) temperature, and light snow.


“I look forward to coming back to Canada,” the President said to the Canadians who came to see him, “when it’s warmer!”


This anecdote greeted me this morning as I read today’s hardcopy edition of The Ottawa Citizen. You can also read about the President’s visit, just go to The Star.

    I thought Canada was fine, last time I went through Helena (-24 wind chill), Butte (-12), and Billings (-47 wind chill), Montana with my band on our way to Medicine Hat, Regina, Calgary and Vancouver. Thought Canada was downright balmy. Obama grew up in Hawaii – or Kandahar, according to “birthers.” He isn’t used to wind chill factors.

      I’d love to say that being a Canadian I don’t mind those “below zero” temperature, but I have to say, I’ll never get used to it, either 🙂

    I don’t know why he doesn’t like the cold? He should be be used to it since he is always getting the cold shoulder from the right side.
    Thanks for the piece.
    Take Care.
