Coldness between Winnipeg and Toronto

A few weeks ago, several people came to visit Winnipeg from Toronto. It was their first visit. As most people do, they also have the wrong concept that Winnipeg is extremely cold.

First time, they were surprised that we do not have basement (indoor) parking lot – wherever you go, the parking lot is just on the ground, uncovered.

The next day, they realised that we don’t need a indoor parking.

In Winnipeg, the temperature is much lower than that in Toronto. I mean the number is so. While they need indoor parking with higher temperature, we do not need that with lower numbers.

That is because of the different coldness between Winnipeg and Toronto.

They have damp cold – so cold damn cold in Toronto. 🙂 And we have dry cold. So even the number is lower, but the feeling or actual coldness is not that severe.

몇주 전에 토론토에서 몇 사람이 왔다. 위니펙에 처음 왔다고 했다. 대체로 그렇듯이 위니펙이 무지 춥다는 잘못된 상식을 갖고 있었다.

처음에 그들이 위니펙에 지하 주차장이 없는 것에 매우 놀랐다. 어딜 가든 지상 주차장 뿐이니까.

다음날, 여기선 실내 주차장이 필요 없다는 걸 알게되었다.

위니펙의 온도는 토론토보다 훨씬 낮다. 숫자상으론 그렇다. 그런데 훨 높은 온도에도 지하 주차장이 토론토에선 필요한 반면에 위니펙에선 숫자는 낮지만 별로 필요가 없다.

이는 위니펙과 토론토의 추위의 종류가 다른데서 기인한다.

토론토는 습한 추위(damp cold여서 damn cold 그러니까 C8 추위)지만 여기는 건조한 추위여서 온도는 더 낮아도 느낌이라던가 실제 추위는 훨씬 약하다.
