Anyone From Nova Scotia?

Recommended Posts

If there is anyone from NS here please help. I am going to NS in the morning. Is there a lot of snow near Halifax? I wonder if it would be posible to find some caches while there......

 

Thanks!

Yeah, however as a native 'lefty' (and returning there on Sunday :huh: ) I have to say that Halifax is a nice place to be from... 3000 miles from that is! ;)

Centre of the Universe = Rocky Mountains, right?

Yeah. You know, way over there in eastern Canada, along with that French place and all those little provinces. The prairies are of course central Canada, and BC is the West. :huh:

Yep, right there at "the center of the universe". Check the first definition for Toronto here.

Ok, I can buy that. Of course based on scientific study Toronto ranks right up there with Elves, Sprites, Goblins, and (depending on your thoughts on molecular-level particle physics) dark matter. :huh:
