In southern Ontario last year we had an abnormally deep coverage of snow. The year before it was less snowy (but still snowy enough) and cold. The year before, also snowy. I know I wore my snowpants at least a few times over the previous three winters. This year? We’ve had very little snow and it’s been incredibly mild for most of the winter.
Considering I’ve spent the previous five years experiencing significant winter, both here in London and in Whitehorse, I admit that this year has been really quite pleasant. Heck, it’s currently 15 degrees in the middle of March. I’m not complaining.
