Worst snowstorm of 2008 in Toronto

My mom and I arrived in Toronto, Canada right on the date when the worst snowstorm they had for that winter season was beginning and experienced real snow falling before our eyes. For someone like us who lives in a country like the Philippines with only rainy and summer seasons, this might sound a "treat" for us.

Here's a view outside our window during that night, the wind then was beginning to blow harder and snow is has been falling non-stop.


This is the view outside our window the next morning. Roads were very slippery, if not impassable by this time.


The road visibility was still clear when we left Toronto that morning.


An hour later, while driving by the highway going to Kitchener, Ontario, road visibility was already very poor.


When we arrived in Kitchener, these are the scenes that greeted us.


For my mom and I, it was fun to see real snow on trees, houses and cars passing by. However for locals, a snowfall like this is not welcome because it meant shovelling of their front lawns.

More pictures are available in multiply. Just add me as a friend to view them.

I visited Toronto in Winter a few years back. I was living in New York at the time but I think Toronto invented cold weather! - It was freezing! Still had a great time and cool people.
