vidTO: Catastrophe Strikes Toronto

It's far more fun to go to a live taping of the Rick Mercer Report at the CBC building than it is to whine about how long it took to shovel your driveway last week. Too bad live tapings for the 2007/2008 season are all sold out, and too bad Toronto has been getting slammed by bigger winter storms, repeatedly, this year. The bitching and whining is at an all-time high.

This is clip is from the RMR archives from the week of February 20th 2007, after 20cm of snow brought its wrath to Toronto. It's still funny today because the catastrophic snow is piled higher than usual and we're expecting the vicious attack to continue through Tuesday.

And winter isn't even close to over yet. Waaaaaaah!
