Toronto Snow Storm: Twitter, Rest Of Canada Pokes Fun At City's Winter Freakout (TWEETS)

Call in the army one time after a snowfall and no one lets you forget it.

Toronto is facing a major winter storm starting on Thursday night that's expected to bring 15 to 25 centimetres of snow by the end of Friday. Toronto hasn't seen that much snow in one go since December 2008, according to Environment Canada climatologist David Phillips.

The much-mocked January 1999 storm that had then-Toronto Mayor Mel Lastman calling the military dumped 35-45 cm centimetres of snow on the city. In all, Toronto was hit with over a metre of snow within the first two weeks of that month.

Four hundred troops were called in (armoured vehicles in tow) to help dig the city out, and the rest of Canada will never (ever, ever) let Toronto live it down.

As Toronto faces a fresh flurry of snow, enjoy this flurry of Twitter users reminding the centre of the universe what wusses they are when it comes to winter weather:
