Re: Red Deer and Medicine Hat Trip Report

Is "porch" an American/Texan thing? Habs always calls it her deck. ;) :lol: I say, "front porch" and "back deck." Porch is probably a California thing. Not really. I have always called a porch as such whether front, side, or back. We had a back porch on our farmhouse.
