A couple of winters ago we had more snow in Ottawa than most folks could remember. We suffered, and shoveled, and grumbled, as windrows grew to twenty feet or so. Then we learned that we were literally inches from the all-time snowfall record.
You guessed it. We prayed for a storm that would put us over. (And it didn't come!)
Go, Leafs. I just can't seem to wrench my gaze away.
