1. You wait for it to warm up to -8F in the afternoon to go for groceries.
2. You are going north at 13:00, and the sun is too bright in your rearview mirror to see anything else.
3. You overdress, so are sweated up by the time you get the groceries home.

OK I had to LOL at that one. My "problems" have mostly been with not being able to see traffic lights on my way to evening services on a Sunday because of backlighting by the setting sun, but I live a bit south of you.

My gas is up to $0.99 a burrito, $5.99 for premium and I'm only getting 10 miles to the regular burrito. Dang $0.99 burritos are smaller now.

4. You live too far North when you have to heat your cycle computer before it works.
5. You have to make velomobiles bear proof.
