Close, yet so far.

I live very close to the Canada/ U.S. border. As a matter of fact, 77% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the border.

That’s less than I heard before which was 90% of Canadians live within the 100 mile zone. Maybe more people are moving up north while most of us like to stay huddled close to the warmth.

I live way down here, further south than a lot of places in America!

I’ve wasted a half hour trying to get an arrow on this thing.

Many, many people around here go to Port Huron regularly, apparently to save money. I’ll never understand this. It’s a one hour drive to the border, then you have to go through customs, go find stores with the same crap we have here and our dollar is only worth 76¢ in America right now. Then back through customs again. It’s a long, tiring day. Want to save money? STAY HOME!

Maybe more of the population has moved north in recent years. There is retirement community in Elliot Lake they advertise on TV.
