When winter rolls around, the weather becomes everyone's default conversation topic. No matter how harsh or mild the temperatures are, we all need to share stories about the cold, the roads, what we "hear it's supposed to feel like" next week, and the like. That said, some provinces get a whole lot colder than others, yet we all love to complain just the same. A hilarious cartoon about Vancouver winter pokes a little fun at Vancouverites for their reactions to the cold out west.\nAs we know, winter in Vancouver is not quite as brutal as it is out east. Even just in the next province over, Alberta tends to have far colder winters than British Columbia.\nGeoff Coates, Art Director and Illustrator, created a cartoon to sum up how folks in Vancouver feel about winter. The cartoon depicts two frames. The frame on the left says "Vancouver," while the frame on the right says "everywhere else."\nThe Vancouver frame shows a man dressed in modest winter attire, a light jacket and a beanie, as some rain falls in the background. The "everywhere else" frame shows someone in a blizzard, icicles hanging from his bright red nose, totally decked out in winter layers.\nView this post on Instagram I don’t think you understand. #tuesday #cartoon #comics #humor #westcoast #drawing A post shared by Geoff Coates (@geoff.coates) on Nov 26, 2019 at 8:56am PST\nThe men in the frames are both talking on the phone, presumably to one another. The man in the Vancouver frame has a speech bubble that says “Yyyeaaahh…but it’s a WET cold.”\nCoates said to Vancouver is Awesome that he is a lifelong Vancouver local and he hears people saying this sort of thing every year.\nHe thinks it’s a way to excuse how cold Vancouverites get in the winter even though temperatures normally hover above zero.\nhttps://www.reddit.com/r/vancouver/comments/e54lkc/god_damnit_this_is_too_relevant/ from https://www.reddit.com/r/vancouver\nThe cartoon was posted on Reddit on Monday and has received nearly 400 comments since.\nMany people in the comments agree that the "wet cold" really does chill you to the bone.\nOn the flip side, others are chiming in with comments like, "It goes down to -40° and below where I live in AB. I also lived in the Lower Mainland for about a decade. I much prefer the rain in Vancouver."\nThough, for the most part, people agree that west cost cold hits hard. Even some Albertans agree.\n"Edmonton-born, Alberta raised. Yup. The humidity makes the difference. The only people I know who make the "hur dur you don't know cold" jokes like that are those who have never been to the west coast and just see a number on the weather channel," one Albertan wrote.\nIf you've had the pleasure of encountering Geoff Coates' cartoons in the past, you'll know he's pretty on-point. His rendition of the "west coast no" is equally relatable.\n\nThe ol’ West Coast No. pic.twitter.com/xH9JF0gcBD— Geoff Coates (@farfarnugen) November 27, 2019\n\n \nThough we all love to complain about the weather, some weather experts predict a milder winter than usual in Canada this year. Though, we'll likely still end up complaining about it.\n\n\nThere are stories everywhere.
