I'm getting my run in before evening today, because forecasters are calling for a massive snow storm. (Picture above is of my balcony after a recent snowfall -- more like drifting snow.)
From Toronto Posted
A massive blizzard is expected to hit Toronto tomorrow [Saturday] night, bringing what forecasters say will be the most snow the city has seen in 50 years.That's almost 10 inches.
“In the past we’ve been wrong, and we’ve looked silly when the big storm got stalled somewhere in Iowa. But we’re pretty sure a big storm is coming this time around,” said OPP Sgt. Cam Woolley. “The storms seem to be quite genuine this year, but I think people are better prepared because of the ones we already had.”
The storm could bring upward of 25 cms to Toronto by the end of the weekend, said Environment Canada meteorologist Sarah Wong. The last time southern Ontario got 25 cms was 1944.
This should make running very interesting. I should actually look at getting a pair of Yak Trax.
Been a nice slow week of running. Did 10 miles so far this which is piddly for me and my fellow runners but it's actually taken time. About 30 minutes per 3 or 4 mile run, so I've gotten out there three times. Funny thing about this maintenance mode is that a coworker spotted me eating a small bag of Doritos and pointed that out. I said, "marathon training starts in January, so for now I can eat like a normal person." What the hell does a normal person eat anyways, really?
