The Blizzard of 1888 was also in March. About two feet of snow buried the city in drifts as high as 14 feet, ripping chimneys off roofs and roofs off shops. You remember digging out, don’t ya? Isn’t that Andy Fardy in the foreground?

Yikes. Remember this record snowfall from 2013? A nightmare for the Finch administration. Fairfield Avenue Downtown.

Just in case you’re dreaming of this, Monte Carlo awaits.
