As a Canadian living in the U.S. permanently, I have seriously had many, many people asking me what it was like to live in an igloo.
I thought that certainly they must be joking, but I'd look and see that, no, they were completely serious.
On Vancouver Island, it rarely even snows, maybe a few days a year in a cold year. There'd be no ice or snow to make an igloo with. Too funny!
