This winter in Edmonton the wind chill got into the late -40's! (around -52F). And it stayed that way for a couple days...imagine walking outside and in the first 20 seconds the tips of your nose and fingers begin to go numb...it hurts to inhale because the air is too cold and when you come back inside you can literally feel your body thawing out...thats Edmonton in winter! (I love it here tho)
I can't imagine adjusting to a city like Nashville where the coldest it gets is freezing point. But ever since I found out Nashville is our sister city I want to visit there.
Don't visit Nashville in July or August if your not used to heat. It's around 90 here and with a 80% humidity. Your welcome anytime though. Just don't dress like most tourists do in long sleeve Western shirts, jeans, and boots. Noone that lives here really dresses that way contrary to what's in movies and TV. Plus you'll roast in those clothes in the summer or spring (it was 80 something today). In the winter the coldest That I have ever seen in 30 years is -1 I think. It rarely gets below 40.
And as for cold weather, in Edmonton, -10C is decent in the winter (To me anyways). -15C to -20C is when it starts to get pretty cold. I still don't know how I survived that -40C streak we had here in November(I think). It baffles me still how the players survived the Heritage Classic
From the map, Nashville also looks like it should be in the East. Also, it's only now that things have been put into perspective, now I have a much clearer understanding of why hockey isn't big in the southwest area. Look at the teams, and look at how they are spread out. Wow.
