Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Jackie, dressed in a tank top and shorts, lounges on a lawn chair under a sun umbrella as a drink sits beside her on a table. She sighs. In the blue sky, wispy clouds spell out the words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Marie is sitting on her bed, talking to Jackie on her laptop.

[on the computer]: Is it snowing in Toronto?

Marie:'s actually been pretty mild here lately.

Panel 3: Jackie also has her laptop out.

Jackie: But it will snow again, right?

Marie [on the computer]: I guess.

Panel 4: Marie, on her bed, is getting puzzled.

Jackie [on the computer]: And you'll send me pictures? Pictures of the snow?

Marie: Uh...

Panel 5:

Marie: Jackie, you hate snow. You always used to complain about it when you were here.

Panel 6:
Back to Jackie.

Marie [on the computer]: And now you're in California. I thought you liked it.

Jackie: Sure...but...well...

Panel 7: Back to Marie.

Marie: You've got weather-related Stockholm syndrome, haven't you?

Jackie [on the computer]: Could you mail me an icicle? For old times' sake?

Alt-Text: Weather-related Stockholm syndrome is actually quite rare and tends not to affect anyone who has ever spent the winter in Toronto.
