Toronto In The Winter: A reminder of what snow looks like!

It's January 4th, the decorations are away (almost) and the house back in order (kind of), yet I feel as if something is still missing.  When I stumbled on a video about getting a head start on the spring time garden it occurred to me that what is missing is the snow.  In fact as I look out into my backyard it almost seems as if the garden hasn't quite died from last season! Sure we've had a bit of snow, and certainly the 25 below weather of yesterday is winter like but the lack of long lasting, lovely, clean winter whiteness has been missing!  

So my solution last night was to look to see if I could find some winter shots from around Toronto from years gone by and live vicariously through them (hoping to remind myself that I really in fact don't miss the snow!). Hope you enjoy!

(So the first three pictures were a reminder to me of the not so fun parts of major snowstorms so I thought it only fair to share some of the more enjoyable qualities!)

(Lakeshore isn't looking too enjoyable, actually looks kind of windy, and miserable but at least there isn't traffic!)
