Yes, it snowed. Not as much as was hyped, but enough to affect many of our days. It is pretty, and also annoying; some people want to make snow forts, and others want everyone to just shut up about it already.
But! It is a snowfall that must be contended with. It is undeniably…present. And thus, your very short guide to what is going on:
TTC: No major delays reported, though expect a slower-than-usual commute on surface routes.
GO Transit: GO is operating on a special severe weather schedule for the Georgetown, Lakeshore East, and Lakeshore West lines.
VIA Rail: No major delays reported.
Airports: Both Pearson and Porter are reporting numerous delays and cancellations, and advise all travellers to call ahead and check on the status of their flights.
Schools: All TDSB and TCDSB schools are closed. Many private and separate schools are closed also; 680 News has a fairly comprehensive list.
Colleges and universities: Seneca, Humber, Sheridan, George Brown, and Centennial colleges are all closed for the day. York University, including Osgoode Hall, is closed. Classes are cancelled at U of T’s Scarborough campus; the MIssissauga campus is closed entirely. St. George and Ryerson students? You are still expected to show up. Our condolences. OCADU is closed until 2:30 p.m., check the website later today for further updates.
Child care and recreation: Programs and services, including City-run child care centres, which are located in TDSB and TCDSB facilities are close for the day. Classes and programs run out of community centres and other City facilies are proceeding as normal.
