Given that this is Toronto have they sent in the Army yet to deal with this natural disaster?

It's not Toronto...it's Richmond Hill. We're tougher up here.

BTW In at work now (in Toronto) and there's no snow at all here. I'm sure the boys in Afghanistan are on stand-by just in case we need them here in a hurry.

Oh yeah, Richmond Hill remains in the boonies until mid-February.

We now have a snowfall warning in effect with 15cm (& possibly more) forecast overnight. Looks like my new Snowblower is going to get a workout!

OK, that gives me a bit more time to practice my pouring-scorn-on-the-hicks-from-the-sticks attitude.

Well, Dear Readers, it's past time for an update on the Richmond Hill s-n-o-w situation. Here we go.....there is none.

The imperial sprinkling alluded to heretofore has succumbed to a stubbornly uppish thermometer thingy. Nowt but grass to be seen. dbd33 and I for once agree about the s-n-o-w depth....zilch, nada, null.

But all is not yet lost: according to my distinguished colleagues in Environment Canada, the jetstream is planning a Florida vacation on Monday. Suitably sub-zero temperatures are to be anticipated. Perhaps the little darling will shed a few tears on its way south.

Novocastrian, reporting from the future. Goodnight.

I have to admit to being more than a little perplexed that this riveting thread has languished untouched for more than 48 hours.

Meanwhile, of course, the s-n-o-w depth has pointedly failed to make the crucial breakthrough from the realm of nothingness.

We are almost half way through January now here in Richmond Hill. Surely the state of the s-n-o-w-iness here, a place not far removed from the manufacturing and cultural engine of the second largest country in the world, is of at least of passing interest to this community, spread out, as it is, across the world?

Perhaps not in this day and age. I worry you know.

Probably because those of us with snow (ie the majority) couldn't give a fetid dingo's kidney????

Don't you think mixing s-n-o-w and dingos in the same sentence is pushing it a bit?

Latest: another imperial sprinkling overnight and several centimetres (about half as many as several inches dbd) in the forecast for tonight. Palpable is the anticipation of release at last.

Auch, vieleicht, noch enger begrenzt durch ein in etwa kleinerer Wortschaft?

Frueheste Nachrichtung: In Richmond Hill ...no more s-n-o-w.
