What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Gorgeous summer. Pretty leaves in the fall. Autumn starts arriving mid-August. - Aug 2020

VERY cold (a few days in minus 30s) in the winter, but a very pleasant summer. - Feb 2018

Hey, this is Canada. The winters are quite long and cold. Summer is surprisingly humid. Spring and fall are best - blustery and energizing, I find. - Aug 2012

Six months of winter, some of it brutally cold (negative 30F or more windchill); very mild summers; long falls which stay reasonably warm -- often into early December; very short springs. I grew up in a very cold, dry climate, and the cold here was beyond anything I had ever experienced. - Dec 2009

It seems to be getting colder, snowier, and rainier, according to the locals. This year we had just a few non-rainy days all summer, so everyone booked trips to Cuba in August. - Sep 2009

Amazingly, horribly cold for six months of the year. Winter 2007-2008 saw 13 feet of snow fall, and 2008-2009 is on track to match it. Spring and Fall are brief, but Summer is glorious, and people stay out every night on terraces to enjoy it. - Jan 2009
