Talking Toronto Winter Storm 2019

ARTICLE: Planes, trains and automobiles: Snowfall causes transportation delays in Toronto
(with pics and Tweets)

Quote:
The snowfall in Toronto has caused a number of transportation delays on Tuesday.

The Toronto Transit Commission is reporting longer than normal travel times for buses, streetcars and subway trains due to the inclement weather.

Officials say there is no subway service on Line 2 between Woodbine and Warden stations due to signal issues. Shuttle buses are operating to move commuters along.

GO Transit is also experiencing delays due to the road conditions.

York Mills Bus Terminal is out of service and the #32 GO bus will stop service at the Highway 407 Bus Terminal.

The TTC Protocol is in effect at Yorkdale, York Mills, Finch, and Scarborough Centre stations. GO Transit users can travel free of charge on the TTC when they show their GO fares.

Toronto Pearson International Airport continues to experience flight delays and cancellations.

As of 7 a.m. on Tuesday, 187 arrival and departure flights have been cancelled.

Passengers are urged to check their flight status before arriving at the airport.

Ontario Provincial Police said there were around 300 crashes on highways in the Greater Toronto Area in the past 24 hours.

Police are urging motorists to drive according to the conditions and keep a safe distance between vehicles.
I didn't find it so bad. I enjoyed my bus revving really hard going up a not-too-steep hill.

Saw a couple of the newer low level buses from Bombardier stuck.

With the SRT completely shut down, and problems with stations there were outdoors, I wonder how the future Eglinton LRT line will fare in a similar storm?

Anyone one get stuck on the highway last night or get into a fender bender last night?

We've had worse storms before, but I always find it entertaining watching the chaos on the roads. Does that make me sadistic?

Re: Toronto Winter Storm 2019

Yeah, this year winter is quite tough. I'm getting used to constant traffic jams. Thankfully, I got my house prepared beforehand. I covered it with siding http://sidinginvancouver.com/. A log structure isn't good and hence there are slits. Siding and insulation under it dealt with this problem.
