Edit: So imagine having someone move from Vancouver to the rockies, they would likely have a tough time coping with it. And thats not even a big regional difference, imagine someone born and raised in some place like Florida or California, and moving to a place like Edmonton.
Although the ambient temperature is one measure there are many other factors. I grew up in the Prairies the first time I went to Vancouver for a Grey-cup (this time of year) I froze. The humidity makes a huge difference so we were already used to -10C here but +5C in Vancouver felt way colder. We had to wear our down jackets and we thought we were going to a warm climate. Just saying!
