Quebec, Canada is the coldest place i've ever been in the world. I do try to make it every year to their fabulous winter carnival which is usually held for 2 weeks in late January/early February. This year for the first time that I can remember the US dollar was worth less than the Canadian dollar. If you have some US quarters sitting around, make sure to bring some with you. For years i've been on the receiving end of worthless canadian quarters that don't work in US vending machines or washers/dryers, but to my surprise US quarters seem to work in parking meters and maybe even vending machines.
