If you read other blogs from the Toronto area, you'll know that we've been getting arguably more than our fair share of snow this year. (Yes, I realize that I have chosen to live in this country, I'm just saying nearly 50cm of snow in less than a month is a little extreme. Apparently, 2007-08 is now the second snowiest winter on record.) In addition, if one lives in a house that's newer than roughly 1986, it means you get mail delivered to a SuperBox, and not directly to your door. This means getting the post sucks during the winter.
But sometimes it's worth it.
