    I've seen all the jokes regarding this and I have to admit I did have a good laugh :D

    But I remember reading this which could turn this saying on it's head.

    Northerners crank up the heating long before ‘soft’ southerners, study finds

    A study found those living south of London will simply don another layer to keep warm while Geordies and Scots will reach for the thermostat instead.

    Canadian Football League
    The Toronto Argonauts won the 105th Grey Cup on 11/26/17 against the Calgary Stampeders as flurries fell and blanketed the field at Ottawa's TD Place Stadium. 36,000 fans watched from the stands with temperatures at -6C and 2cm of snow.

    Mind you, we have never regarded soccer players as being the epitome of toughness.

    Some people over here (uk) are arranging to rent their homes out during the winter, and using the the money to fund a stay abroad
    returning in the spring.

    No offense, but vacationing in the U.K. in winter isn't exactly my first holiday choice. Or, is the domestic market they are looking to rent to?

    It's alright for some. Here on the west coast of Scotland our heatwave finished at the end of July. Since then there have only been a couple of days when it hasn't rained at some stage. Forecast for next three days is gales and heavy rain!!

    Just think of the benefits. Big savings on sunscreen.
