The City of Toronto received 118 centimetres of snowfall in January 1999, highlighted by the Jan. 14 overnight dump of some 40 centimetres, which prompted the fateful call.

 Okay lets see any major prarie city handle this amount of snow in a short amount of time.

Yes it might snow like this in the mountains and some places on the east coast and even lake effect cities but Toronto is the biggest city in Canada so it is not comparable.

My friends just got passed by a police Marine Unit heading up to Bathurst and the 401.

I was going to make a joke about now that the hockey season is finally over all this water must be coming from the rinks melting.  However then I remembered that Canadian teams generally don't make the later rounds of the playoffs so their rinks would have been shut down long before this....

Seriously though, flooding sucks (I just went through one last week - about a $5k business loss that we weren't expecting nor insured for).  Good luck to all up north.

I was going to post a come back but saw that you live in Kentucky and realized you suffer every day. You have my pity.

Call me when they're using helicopters to save people's lives and when you have people die, until then kindly shut the hell up.

This being Toronto, I assume the military has already been called in.

It smells better today.  Floods wash away a multitude of sins.

Call me when a runaway oil train blows up your city centre and vapourized dozens of people. Seriously. No one outside of Calgary gives a damn about your flood anymore.

Call me when a 40m tsunami kills more than 15,000 people and destroys a nuclear power plant. Get some farking perspective.

Kinda hoping this means 'rain day' or 'flood day' tomorrow and I can stay home from work...

Hoping they advise residents to "... stay in your homes, don't go out if you don't have to..."

See, this is why people around here hate you, you single-handedly give Toronto, Ontario and Canada a bad name and this place would be far better if someone would just ban you.

So, that first picture ... that's the straight running down to Turn 3. We're supposed to be running there on Friday.

This will be an interesting weekend ...

A primer for non-Canadians regarding tragedy in Canada.

1. A Tragedy/National Disaster Occurs somewhere in Canada.

2. If the tragedy is a major flood in Manitoba, or Forest Fires in BC, all Canadians feel for them.

3. If the tragedy is a shooting, all Canadians feel for them.

4. If the tragedy is an oil industry related disaster, All Canadians feel for them, but blame Alberta.

5. If the tragedy is in Quebec, all Canadians feel for them, but anglophones secretly snicker as the Quebecquois ask for Federal government aid to help out.

6. If the tragedy is in Toronto, Canadians mock Toronto's desire to be world class, and boast of how Toronto is full of wimps who need the army called in to dig out from a little snow.

7. If the tragedy is in a small town/rural township, all Canadians feel even more for them, since we maintain an image of them being 'True Canadians', farmers, lumberjack's, working the earth, etc.

Gang... GANG!  Listen: if you don't know, it is miserable to live in Toronto.  I mean, their hockey team is the Maple Leafs!  The misery of power outages, basements and homes being flooded, and the chaos of the flood added to the misery of just living in Toronto is enough to make any sane person snap.

Imagine... everyone in a major city suddenly going postal.

Something to think about.

When we got upstairs, we started drinking the beer first - saving the water in case of emergencies.
