Canadians - Describe to me how you survive a winter in Canada.
I'm moving to Saskatoon in a few months, but I can barely survive -2c in the UK. What are the right clothes to wear, the right winter activities, ways of heating your home etc.
Any other info on Canadian (or saskatoon) society is very welcome.

well you will definitely have to reconsider your definition of cold.... minus 2 is very warm for this time of year! I'm from Edmonton (in the province west of Saskatchewan) and it's about -17 now which is pretty average, but I think Saskatoon is colder and gets more snow (why are you moving here!? ) Oh and there are no such thing as "snow days" -so school/work is never ever cancelled in extreme weather!
How to survive? Tim Horton's, longjohns, and staying indoors. You must must go skiing in the Rockies!! (Lake Louise, Fernie, Marmot etc). And your place will have central heating I assume... On the plus ish side, the summers are hot, dry, and sunny.
