    I'm in Toronto, and I'm guessing having winter tires is not mandatory here anymore because, heck, look at all the accidents.
    They should have it here, though. I mean, in the city with the highest population, it would make sense.

    And I know that feel, Cosmotone- losing power and heat during the storm. We didn't lose power, but coincidentally, my house's heater "malfunctioned" during the storm. It was freezing inside. ><

    They should make them mandatory, but the real problem with that is that tires are really expensive. And so is changing them.

    They're about $300-700 depending on the model here, plus about $200-300 for a replacement.

    Well, living where the oil rigs are, we need winter tires often, as well as summer tires. So they pump up the prices here to make some buck.

      If you could go on a week long vacation to any one place in Canada, where would you go?

      Maybe Toronto? I always go to Toronto but never enough for sightseeing AND hanging around with friends. A week long vacation would be great, will give me enough time for both

        I guess I'd want to visit Toronto for a week, followed closely by Montreal. And while I've got no specific city in mind, I'd like to visit the Maritimes, too.

          I'd love to go to Toronto to see a basketball or baseball game. Or to see Caribana. Any combination of the three would be awesome.

          Anyone here excited for Spring?

          Where I am, the snow is starting to melt, and the forecast says it's gonna hit +1 C on Saturday :D

          I can't WAIT for spring. I was so happy to see the snow in front of my apartment building melting but then, yesterday it started to snow hard again...

          I really hope that this was the last time that it snowed... (which I doubt)

          I don't know if I can say I'm all that excited for Spring... when I'm still waiting for Winter to happen; in total I think we got 2 or 3 days of snow all the way back in December. Seeing as how it's March in another couple hours, I think our Winter weather is long gone over here.

          I might have to move out East one day to experience a real Canadian Winter (I loved it the last time I was in Calgary where it was -20 and snowing). Maybe I'm just crazy, but I'm sick of the mild weather we get here in January-February.

          Basketball. Baseball is boring to sit through and the Jays are terrible. XD

          I've never been to Caribana, but simultaneous to that is a similarly themed festival at Harbour Front. I go to that almost every year

            I like baseball, though its only fun if you go to see the game live or watch highlights. :/ Otherwise its just too slow. I also saw the Jays play the Red Sox once up in Toronto. It was a 1-0 win for the Jays with the only run coming from the opposing pitcher walking the guy home. That's Blue Jays baseball for you.

            Brendino, if you want a REAL CANADIAN WINTER, come on over here to Sask. Temperatures during winter average -30 to -40. You might not like the snow though (too frozen for snowballs, seriously).

            Speaking of snow, thank goodness it's starting to melt here. My internet speed is starting to recover, and it's +1 right now :D

            It started snowing here again :C

            It's -4°C right now.

            Getting real tired of your crap, weather.

            I always enjoy the snow to look at, more than anything. And I don't know if it's just me, but 0° here felt as cold as it did at -20 in Calgary, but I think that has something to do with living closer to the ocean. Obviously -40 is much colder still, but it's still something I'd like to experience one of these days.

            And looking through the past number of posts here, it proves the old adage true that Canadians really do enjoy talking about the weather!
