Yes Virginia, There Really is a Winter in Toronto

In honour of Environment Canada coming in 8th in Yahoo! Canada’s top searches for 2007, I shall blog about the weather.

It’s so cold here in Toronto, the weather forecasters are overestimating the temps by several degrees because they can hardly believe it’s winter in December. It’s so cold here in Hogtown, it’s bringing back memories, memories of snow from November to March, memories of cold so sharp your breath froze right in front of you, memories of a sun so bright it hurt to look at its reflection in the snow, memories of real winters with real white Christmases, memories of snow angels and snow forts, memories of red-tipped noses and cheeks glowing and hands warming around a mug of hot cocoa. It’s nostalgia time here in T.O. for people of a certain age and for a time when cold wusses didn’t live in the city, but snow fans who couldn’t wait to ski and skate and throw snowballs at glowering adults who promptly threw back, and for a time when the city plowed the streets so fast one could hardly believe there had been snow on them, except for the thin conga lines of tracks down the sidewalks. Yes, Torontonians, it’s winter time again.
