In canada we dont use fahrenheit, we use Celsius. Its way different!! i think 25 celsius would be 77 fahrenheit (which is still a much lower temperature than what it usually is this time of year!)

107F is around 35c. nice weather, my kind of heat (cold makes me cranky and crazy). wooohhoooo summer is coming, 1st day spring today, yay i feel better already
so canada is celcius and metric yes?? and USA farenheit and pre metric (dont know right word, well before my time). that is very interesting, you are so close but have different systems, boy that would get confusing at the boarder or for travellers.

The kilometers and mile thing isn't that hard to figure out, I think.
One mile equals 1.609 kilometers and one kilometer equals .6214 mile
Miles x 1.609 = kilometers
So, 25 miles x 1.609 = 40.225 Kilometers

The temperature thing is a bit more complicated.
Celsius to Farenheit (C x 1.8) + 32 = F
Example: 25 degrees celsius x 1.8 = 45 + 32 = 77 F

My math teacher from middle school would be proud, we had to memorize these formulas and conversions, I cannot for the life of me tell you his name but I remember that there are 5280 feet in a mile!!!
