One of the benefits of maintaining a site like this is you can always reference dates of past occurrences. I can link to this entry from December 9, 2005 in which I mentioned the big snowfall we had. I can also link to this picture of the snowman James and I built on December 10 and this entry from March 13, 2006 in which I mentioned the fact we never had a decent snowfall after that so we were never able to build another snowman. On that March day it was 13° and we were coming off the warmest winter on record.
We're ten days from Christmas and we're expecting a high of 11° this weekend. Snowmen in this city are an endangered species. I don't want to sound like an old coot telling the kiddies how tough it was in my day, but I'm certain we had a ton more snow. At least we had snow, I think. I remember snow.
I don't have the stats handy, but if you go more than a year without being able to produce a half decent snowman in the city of Toronto, there might just be an inconvenient truth in need of attention. Mr. Snowman, you are missed.
