A conversation with our ProQuest rep from Dubai, after he asked about winters and summers in Canada, which I have described to him:

Him: ...so it's basically winter over there all year round then?

Me, shocked: No, there's totally summer!

Him: *looks unconvinced*

Me: *reconsiders* ...except...summer there is equivalent to winter here, so, um, I guess you're right. :)

We are currently in the frigid depths of winter, Middle Eastern style, with highs of 20-30 degrees above zero. I adore it. Despite the fact that with no indoor heating, it DOES get awfully cold inside when it's an extra chilly night and dips down to 14 degrees or something - good thing I brought some warm clothes!

Ooh, there wouldn't be indoor heating, would there? Any more than there's much call for A/C in, say, Whitehorse.

Does rather put the general perception of Canada as constantly frozen in perspective, though!

Wilt be there through Qatar summer? It's a year's sojourn, right?
