Snow Day - April 4th Edition
Time travel is real.
The average snowfall for Toronto is 2 inches (5 centimetres). The average number of days it snows in April - 2. Getting 10 centimetres of snow in April happens on .1 day in April. (According to current results.com) As we enter the fourth day of April, and the third day in a row of snow, with more snow throughout the week, one thing is clear to me - we've returned to February.
February basically didn't happen this year. In February, we're supposed to average 8.7 days of snow, with average accumulations of 10.6 inches (27 centimetres). That's this week. The ghost of February has been lingering through March, just waiting for its chance. The lion of March gave no quarter, but April blinked. Thinking it would be a fun April Fool's Day joke, April let through a glimpse of February's ghost, and in it rushed.
Ha ha, the joke's on you April. We're taking a snow day. Someone wake me in May.
