So, being someone that studies data graphics, I have to admit the ones I produced about the climate don't tell the whole story. Annual cycles are not going to follow my plots -- they are multi-year averages. Averages are pretty meaningless without standard deviations. I've received a few emails asking me to update my blog with the current weather.
Calgary: -3oC, Toronto, -5oC, St. John's, 0oC
It's pretty warm here right now. Then again, it's also still warm in the other cities I've lived.
