If you think that every day this week we’ve been bringing you bad weather news, you’re not wrong.
First it was a storm, then it was how cold it was going to get, followed by how much snow was going to fall on us, and then we found out this weekend is going to hell, and today it’s about how you should have made the decision to call in sick.
Because according to Environment Canada, you’re not going to want to be outside later today. And you’re definitely not going to want to be on the roads, at the airport, or probably anywhere near the TTC.
The upside is that you still have time to start dropping hints that you’re not feeling well, followed by a couple of trips to the bathroom (sprint there at least once), so that enough people notice and aren’t surprised when you “have to go work from home” for the afternoon.
Environment Canada’s statement for today reads as follows:
Winter Travel Advisory.
An intense band of snow is expected to move through the area early this afternoon. Brief heavy snow and blowing snow may produce whiteout conditions making travel hazardous for a time this afternoon. Snow may quickly accumulate on roads with a quick 2 to 4 cm possible.
Words like ‘intense’, ‘whiteout’, and ‘snow’ are never good when they’re near each other. Stay safe out there, Toronto.
And be patient. It’s going to be a long, cold afternoon for everyone.
