I have no earthly idea what Canadians like to do, so my guess is a word I've been seeing from some of my family members: "Staycation". Which, in their case, meant staying home and basically hiding from the world.

I agree, staying home and getting things done.

That seemed really high to me as well so I googled it and the consensus seemed to be around 65 - 75 lbs. for an adult.

Jack, I didn't even hazard a guess yesterday because I had no idea whatsoever. I didn't Google it, either. I was just really REALLY surprised at the answer, 200 lbs of leaves is a LOT of leaves! ! !

Skibby beat me to it. I was going to say reading, too.

Going to a different climate.

There's a greenhouse near me that posts trivia like this on their outdoor sign. That's where I got it.

My favourite one from years ago is that Flamingos pee on their legs to keep cool.
