According to a recent Toronto Star article, Torontonians should keep their winter coats on because although winter is officially ending, the weather, unfortunately, is not.
It won’t be nearly as bad as the past few months though! ( *huge sigh of relief* )
Using data from The Weather Network, it can be plainly seen that this past winter was colder than normal.
There were 27 extreme cold weather alerts in Toronto since November, which resulted in more days off of school and work. In a recent CBC report, snowfall removal is higher this year than it’s been since 2010.
Here are some (probably not so overly) dramatic representations of what this winter felt and looked like:
There was even a salt shortage…
Anyway… it’s pretty much all over now, and with the end of the semester approaching, there is plenty to look forward to.
