I live in southern Ontario. Look on the map for that arrowhead shape created by the Great Lakes. The straight line connecting Lake Ontario to Lake Erie is the Niagara River. Visualize Hamilton at the very tip of Lake Ontario, north of Lake Erie, with Toronto to the east on the north shore of Lake Ontario, and the Niagara River also to the east, if you travel on the south side of the lake.
This whole area that wraps around the western end of Lake Ontario is the most densely populated and richest in Canada… the “Golden Horseshoe”. This area has an amazing climate, with micro climates also, created by the Niagara escarpment and the cooling or warming effects of the lakes.
We have an interesting climate and lots of challenging WEATHER! We know how to live with extremes.
