Headed this way! Call in the army! Cancel everything! Repent!

Son One was pretty stoked about this one, this morning. He’s a counting on a snow day.

I told him he’s dreaming. Anyone care to offer some baseless speculation?

    Rob Ford will tell people to suck it up it’s Canada and snowplows are gravy, live with it :)
    It will turn out to be a couple of small flurries and then rain

    Bah, 15-25 cm. Big Deal. :)
    We got 45 in Montreal just after Christmas…
    Toronto needs to buy a few snowblowers, that’s all.

    I know what to expect on broadcasts of national news for the next few days.

  4. Tiger says:

    Maybe there’ll be a snow day on Friday. Depends on whether the TTC gets taken out.

    I remember that in the 1990s, there was only one year when I got a snow day.

      Same here. Grade 8, 1990. And not even a full snow day, a half day – we got sent home at lunch. I don’t even know what criteria the TDSB uses for snow days, but it seems it’s pretty hard to meet. Alas, Son One is, in fact, dreaming.

      Also, they always say SNOWMAGEDDON and then…nothing. Total BS. And the TTC never gets taken out.

      • Tiger says:

        Which is as it should be.

        Snow days are fun, but it’s only when it’s dangerous to have people at school that you should close it.

    4 inches of snow, lots of sick days called in, and, many unplanned October births.

  6. David Taylor says:

    Warren. We treat this amount of snow fall in Midland with a great big yawn. Buses don’t run? Then we drive the kids to school. Sheesh.

  7. John says:

    I remember winters when snowfall wasn’t considered “Breaking News”.

  8. Mark N says:

    Trying to move 600,000 people daily on a transit system that’s already beat to hell gets way more difficult with 4-6 inches of snow. One streetcar, one subway train or a couple of buses go out and we’re pooched. Partly our local leaders have no vision, and partly the province/feds keep flipping the city the finger on transit.

    I like Midland and Montreal, but Midland doesn’t have narrow streets in hoods built before cars were around (tough for plows and parked cars to coexist on a lane and a half) and Montreal has benefitted from a legacy commuter rail system that TO can only dream of. Not to mention incredibly huge transit subsidies.

    But hey, go ahead, make fun of Toronto. It’s easy. And yes, you were all so much tougher back in the day. Sheesh.

    Bah! All of you south of the 49th types need to learn what winter is really about. A nice stint on the northern prairies from November ’til March would set y’all straight!
