Hashtag storm

The weatherman – can I say that – or should I say weather person….at anyrate someone who watches the weather forecast for us says this is the the snowiest day in Toronto in two years. The hashtag (also known as a sharp) #OnStorm is trending on Twitter.

Snow storms here are not very common – not like the storms I’ve experienced in other parts of the country – Newfoundland, Alberta, New Brunswick. No the storms here are different in that they are usually warmer, usually the storm is shorter and usually the resources thrown at cleaning it up are much more extensive.

So today…and I should mention my good neighbour Rod came after lunch with his snowblower and cleared the driveway….is a bit of a snow day, but not like much of the country experiences more often.

So people of Canada, try not to laugh when we say we’re having a snow storm. We understand it’s an Ontario storm.
