eh?

How many years has it been?

Was it '99 when good ole' Mel Lastman called in the army to take care of a mere 30" of accumulated snow in Toronto? At the moment after he made the call, I wonder if he had any realization about the mirth that call would generate, and it's longevity.

How many news readers, even today, find a story about a snowstorm ready to hit the GTA with 20" of snow and wonder if they'll have to call in the army?

And is it wrong that I wish we were getting 20" instead of the 4" of snow they are predicting for us? Its just not right that my pup can dig around a bit in the backyard and hit grass.
