Temperature Spreads

Nevermind price spreads, the temperature differential across Canada is extreme.  Here in Vancouver, as the unusually rainy and chilly 60°F “summer” conditions continue, bowling alleys report a boom in business!  The opposite is true in “the furnace city” of Toronto, where highs of 99°F this week triggered the opening of “cooling centers” throughout the city, to keep Torontonians from overheating.  As for lumber markets, while prices have been quietly simmering since bottoming in May, we can only dream that cooling centers might someday be required?
