Speaking as someone who lives on the west side of the pond, this is
all very strange. Bizarre, even. The only similar thing I know of is a
famous occasion on which The Weather Channel published a
calendar and left the Upper Peninsula of Michigan off the USA map.
I wonder what happens in Canada. 90% of the population is within
100 miles of the USA border, but I bet they still get the whole map with
their weather ....
