Snow in Toronto! And a photo to warm you up

Downtown skyline as seen from Toronto Island

The downtown skyline as seen from Toronto Island earlier this week - when it was warm.

T.S. Eliot said “April is the cruelest month” but snow in the middle of it? On a weekend, no less? That’s downright nasty. Toronto got a dusting this morning and with temperatures dropping to minus-1C we might get more tonight. Good news: It’s supposed to hit 16C on Wednesday. Bad news: It’s supposed to rain. Ugh. Seems like we can’t win.

Leafs don’t make the playoffs, Raptors stink too, TTC trains break down more than Charlie Sheen, Rob Ford’s the mayor, summer will never get here, the Habs might win the Cup and if they don’t the Canucks probably will … you gotta wonder if the city’s living in a wasteland of good vibes.

Hopefully this beautiful photograph will remind you it’s still a great city. Julia took it on Tuesday during a walk on Ward Island. That’s when it seemed like we were headed to brighter, warmer days.
