This is my first winter in my new home in southwest Toronto. I was told the effect of being so close to Lake Ontario was cooler summers and warmer winters. I'm assuming that's why we've been spared the worst of this Toronto ice storm.
Don't get me wrong, it's icy out there... it's just not nearly as icy as I'd expected after reading everyone's tweets this morning. We never lost power and it's a little warm to call the sidewalks and roads a skating rink, although the car windows do need a good scraping.
How is the ice where you are?
