From heat waves to snow storms, this talk revisits the highs and lows of Toronto’s weather.
This presentation looks back at two extreme weather events in Toronto’s history. One was the stifling heat wave of the summer of 1936, and the other the great Toronto snowstorm of 1944.
Both events brought Toronto to its knees. As with other presentations, this one draws on a number of rarely perused photographs and newspaper headlines that bring these noteworthy events to life.
