"Some believe that if you schedule holidays at the same time as the local meteorologist, you are bound to have good weather. You can carry that a bit further to even influence where you decide to live. The Frontenac Arch Biosphere (FAB) may be nearly perfect and I will explain why.

The FAB doesn’t make it into the climatic record books of Canada. You might think that it is a bad thing not to hold weather records. Actually the reverse is true. The FAB doesn’t get too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry or too stormy. To quote Goldilocks, the weather and climate in the FAB is just about right. Remember that weather is what you get while climate is what you expect. There will always be exceptions with any generalization."
