28 SNOW

Snow finally hits Toronto and people are already complaining (it’s cold), public transportation has become more sluggish and the subways, roads, side walks, streetcars and buses are all littered with lost mittens, gloves, scarfs and hats. It never seizes to amaze me how every time winter arrives people act surprised as if they have never seen snow before and are appalled by the fact that they are cold. Drivers are unprepared, many have no snow tires and they continue drive at the same reckless break neck speed in spite of the slickness of the road and the dangers of black ice. It gets worst when the snow falls. I prayer “Father Jesus” as I watch the madness unfold. Six months advance notice of the climate change and yet many are taken by surprise, seriously?

  1. For a tropical person who never sees a snow,It is nice to look at the snow clad roads and roofs.But those who live in cold places must be aware of the hazards of speed and some get thrill by the speed till hurt.

    1. Well my friend awareness does no good because they just speed like maniacs and God help those at the sidewalk if there are pooddles they just plod through and soak you. I've learnt the hard way to stand waaaay back from the road.

  4. Nice photos... and I think its not that we are surprised, it is more that we are not willing to be ready for it and willing to do anything about it because everyone hates it. :-)

    1. Not willing is a good assessment.
      I don't hate it, i only hate when the sidewalks get too slippery to walk safely.

  5. Ugh, snow. It is coming down this way soon, too. so far, however, nothing's in sight, I know it is coming . . . that frozen precipitation from the sky . . . I am not delusional that the snow will eventually fall but I'll be just as unhappy about it as your fellow Torontonians!! Um, is that what you call yourselves?

  7. It's my feeling exactly. Every year when winter hits people are so surprised that it snows. You got the weather we had except when the front passed through here the temperature spiked to 65 degrees and it rained hard all day then yesterday it dropped 45 degrees. It could have been snow. Lots of snow.

    I love the pictures!

  9. I don't get to see snow here in Texas except once in every blue-moon. But, I'm sure drivers would as you say, continue to drive reckless and fast even if we did get snow...because they do it in rain, sleet, and hail. I love the photos, they're awesome!

    Wishing you a wonderful week, my friend!

  10. I confess that although I loved seeing the first snowfall, I do enjoy the fact that it's warm here in Hawaii and we don't have to drive in slush.

    1. Sometimes people just get stuck in their own head with their own stuff and are not always mindful of others, unfortunately at time it takes a near fatal accident or a fatal accident to tune them in.
