• Snow in Toronto … at last!

    This morning when we woke up it was snowing!!!   Toronto has had a very mild winter this year due to El Nino, and I am told this is a good thing because apparently the last two winters have been brutal.   The plus of the relatively mild temperatures has meant on the downside we haven’t had much snow.     The Canadian thinks I’m totally cray, cray wishing for heaps of snow but then again I don’t have to commute to work and drive on icy, slick roads with the world’s worst Toronto drivers. The 8-year-old and I bundled up and set out for our walk to school.   It usually takes us…

  • The Toronto Christmas Parade

    Yesterday we had our first snowfall (if you could call it that). We were viewing an apartment and out the window it was snowing, 5 minutes later when we walked outside it stopped. Master 8 and I got very excited at the first sign of the white fluffy stuff, the Canadian among us knowing what is ahead not so much. KILLJOY!
