Why won't it snow in Toronto?


Large areas of Southern Ontario yesterday were blasted by snow. But not us. No, we continue to hover in some weird late-fall-early-spring wet zone.

Being from up North (Sudbury), I'm always dismayed when there's no snow for Christmas. My first year here was the year of the "big snowstorm" that saw Mel call in the army to help clean up. I walked around, in shoes, and unkindly laughed at the complete breakdown of society with a few inches of snow on the ground.

Since then, the city has instituted a snow removal policy, that sees just about all snow scooped up and taken away, rather than clearing paths on sidewalks (and leaving sizable snowbanks as a result).

And while the city claims this lack of snow will save money, others beg to differ.

Myself personally, I'd rather see a little of the white stuff on the ground. Who's with me!?
