The nine

How much of a difference do nine latitudes make? Let's look at an airport in two seperate locations, nine latitudes apart, where baggage handlers begin off loading suitcases mere moments after the plane touches down. In Toronto, where at the time it was well below 0, these handlers were bundled up to face the cold winter, completing their garb with thick gloves and wollen caps and ear muffs of some kind. In contrast, where it was nice & sunny in Bermuda when we touched down, all that was needed for these baggage handlers was a long sleeve shirt and a maybe a cap to sheild their eyes against the bright sun. I really don't need to ask where one would rather be a baggage handler.
