It’s a mess in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) today. A wet, cold, slushy, sloppy, snowy mess.
“In terms of total accumulations, there's about four to five centimetres in the downtown core, higher amounts outside toward Pearson airport," Geoff Coulson, Environment Canada meteorologist, told CBC. "There may only be about 10 centimetres on the ground in some areas but it’s very heavy stuff."
A number of schools were also affected, as many buses were cancelled.
Heavy snow makes for heavy lifting, so caution is recommended for all those shovelling snow out there. Harvard Medical School’s health blog advises shovellers to take breaks often, stay hydrated, and quit if experiencing chest pain, or lightheadedness.
