Indeed we do. Because often that's where the weather comes from. On the
big contextual map in Calgary, we get some of the USA., too (in case
there's weather coming up from the south) and lots of BC. Basically,
they show the air flow over the entire region, because when it shifts,
we get dramatic temperature shifts. Weather is a really big part of the
news here, it seems to me; and this is the first city I have lived in
where they talk about "precipitation" - never willing to commit to snow,
rain or whatever. Sometimes whatever is giant hailstones or freezing
drops of water, so maybe that's sensible.
