Toronto’s 2013 Feb. winter storm and the Great Storm of 1944

Because of the mild winters during the last decade, the snowstorm that hit Toronto on 8 February of 2013, appeared particularly impressive. It created accumulations of nearly 25 cm. Try to imagine a storm with over twice that volume of snow. The great snowstorm of 1944 dumped 57.2 cm. of snow on Toronto. It holds the record as the greatest amount of snow that ever descended on the city within a 24-hour period.

The photos below of the 8 February 2013 storm were taken by my neighbours who live in the King/Spadina area.
