The weather is not fair. Dublin is way to North of us, so why do we get all cold?
I decided to take a peak at a few other pages of my atlas. Lo and behold, Venice is also on 45th parallel. Let me tell you that Venice, Italy weather forecast never calls for getting buried in snow for three or four months of year...unless you happen to be viewing "The Day After Tomorrow". In fact, average temperature in Venice in January is +1 (that's about 34-degrees American).
Hmm. I wondered what else lay along 45th parallel. The French Riviera. Not too much ice going on there. Portland, Oregon. I checked Portland, USA weather forecast. Yup, same as Venice in January. Sevastapol, Urkaine, also with January temperatures near Venice.
In fact, no other well-populated area of world endures so much cold (except parts of Russia, but many of those people can't afford taxi fare to go somewhere else).
So why do so many people with so much wealth live in such an inhospitable climate as Ottawa, Canada? I don't know. Maybe we are waiting for latitude to correct this little anomaly.
Or maybe our brains are simply frozen. Or maybe that's why so many people around here head south to enjoy that Orlando, Florida weather forecast.
