Lol.Can't believe it's been that long.
But like clockwork every winter,someone somewhere needs to remind us every time snow falls with some overdone "bring in the army joke" .

What happened to those lazy salters? Were there salt? Didn't feel like it while driving. Is it time to call the army?
@Supercooled, you need new material... :rolleyes:

damn too much snow, and roads are not salted or plowed.........the city's transportation manager should be sacked for laziness and not getting out there to get roads cleared.
No salters either, really pathetic.
Hopefully the mild weather coming will melt it all away totally.

its really coming down at the moment near danforth scarboro

According to this, they are in full force!

When snow is coming this fast, what is your expectation from the city's transportation services? Plows every 5 minutes? You want to raise taxes for that kind of service? Face Screaming In Fear

I'm convinced someone high up in the food chain with the City of Mississauga either lives on my street or nearby because it and the sidewalks are always cleared quickly.

Snow still coming down heavy here, about 10 cm. I know some areas in the east end are getting more.
Looks like my prediction will be right. Someone in Toronto will get 15 cm.

I am gonna wait till it stops and then snow blow! By the way, when will it stop? I am guessing 10 cm here too, but could be wrong. Ain't gonna measure it lol. Perfect hooning for Subaru tho :razz:

The trailing edge of this latest hit of snow is now in western Toronto.
You say get high, I say hello!

It has stopped here too, but it look a lot longer to stop.

Except for some flurries, don't expect more to come pretty much for the rest of the month. Anything I see coming will be so little, it will melt within a day and won't require shoveling.

EDIT: And based on your last post, the snow came back, so the snow just won't give up eh?
I anticipate even more coming in from the west, but tough to say if it will reach us without tapering off first.

didn't the groundhogs predict early spring ?
Yes. And it kinda looks that way with the warmup I am expecting. The warmth currently out west will gradually shift over to us. Although I can't rule out winter conditions in March yet.
