Re: It's March
I forgot you guys south of the border are one of the last hold-outs to convert things to metric, or vice versa. 35 cm = 14 inches, 15 cm = 6 inches (divide metric by 2.5). Quite honestly since I am from the old-school, I still think in Imperial measurements and have to convert, with snow I am getting used to the conversion, stil have trouble with temperatures and liquid measurements. I know how cold it is by steping outside. The USA were smart not to convet, wish we never had, we still have duplicate measurements in the grocery store...very confusing and expensive since you guys are our biggers trading partner, everything brought into the country has to have more info on the labels. Maybe North America should revolt against the metric invasion.
