Collingwood and the Weather


For all Canadians, talking about the weather is one of our great pastimes.  Weather discussions are often at the start of every conversation.  Over the back fence, on the train to work, at the hockey rink, weather is always part of regular banter among friends and strangers alike.  “How long did it take you to get home last night?”  “Cold enough for ya?”  “My heating bill is really creeping up this year.”  “What’s it’s suppose to be like this weekend?”


In the Collingwood area, weather impacts greatly how we conduct our lives.  It influences how we spend our time and what activities we take part in.  The right weather conditions bring more visitors to the area to enjoy all the outdoor recreation available and the beautiful nature attractions.


Weather also greatly influences the local economy.  It is difficult to over estimate the  importance of weather to businesses so highly dependant on tourism and the recreational market.
