As a child, I learned to read and understand temperatures in F* only.
As an adult, when Canada switched to the metric system, I had to learn to think in C* when it came to temperatures.
I switch from the Metric to Imperial system from time to time, especially when speaking with a person of a certain age who obviously grew up with the Imperial system, such as F*, mph, gallons, inches, etc.
I also grew up here but I guess we are not even close to be being in the same age category. I actually did not know that Canada switched from F to C for whether, so did they also switch to KM from Miles? Did Canada also spell Check instead of cheque back in the day when you were in School
Before switching to kph, all speed limits and signs were in mph only.
The Canadian spelling is cheque. Do schools actually allow cheque to be spelled as check? If not, and if younger people nevertheless spell it as check, it's due to new computers being defaulted to American spelling, hence check instead of cheque, traveler instead of traveller, and so on.
