Bring it, Phil.

Tomorrow, February 2nd is Groundhog Day. Tomorrow if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, we will have to brace ourselves for 6 more weeks of winter (if you’re a believer in such folklore). This winter has been more miserable than usual for Torontonians. Frigid temperatures and little snow have made for frequent weekends trapped in the cold, grey surroundings of downtown.

Feeling chilly are we? Don’t fret, there’s hope yet. Like man’s best friend, Toronto still shows us love this winter, no matter how much we bitch and moan. It’s found in the air, with the funk of stale beer and voices in unison at our favourite live shows. This love may not be warm and fuzzy like your snuggie but it’ll sure make you feel good. So instead of driving your friends crazy complaining about the cold, get inside, get warm, and feel the love.
