Tell me about it. I'm already tired of living out of boxes (for food). And the bathroom, 1st floor ceiling, & more will come soon. But the biggest expense will be when we replace the wood siding with maintenance-free siding. I imagine we'll update the windows while we're at it too. I just hope it ends up being a cheaper job than buying a whole new house LOL.

Much the same as Toronto for humidity I guess. Some days you sweat by doing physical stuff - like breathing LOL.
I always thought of Winnipeg as a forest city - Winnipeg has a forest within its boundaries (Assiniboine Forest) & plenty of elm trees. So I'm curious as to how the 2 cities compare tree-wise.

No way really??? Or did they work for Great West Life & simply get transferred to the head office in Winnipeg? :)
