Sabrina, I always love it when the clouds above the horizon make it look like there are mountains in the distance......beautiful shot!
Yes, we have the Celcius scale in Canada. When I was growing up, we had the Fahrenheit scale, but around 1970 our government (in it's great wisdom decided to change to the metric system, as so much of the world used it. But they forgot that our 'big brother' to the south is probably one of our biggest trading partners, and they weren't about to change! I'm fairly comfortable with both systems, but it's sort of hard to transpose them. I have bookmarked a C. to F. converter on my computer, and I do have a couple of 'buzz' numbers that help me. Like....16C=61F, 20C=68F (room temperature) and 30C=86F. And of course freezing point zero C.=32F.
