Yeah, but 3 years ago we had a lot of snow. 11 days off of school, ah what a great year

That site about Toronto weather was way off; here's something more like it (without windchill):
http://www.weather.com/weather/wxclimatology/monthly/graph/CAXX0504

Is layering under a leather jacket feasible though? if you wear it in early fall with just a shirt under, then layer underneath it as it gets colder, aren't you going to be stretching it out, so much so that it won't look good with just a shirt anymore?

I really love the look of leather jackets, but I'm dubious if it sense for me to drop around $700 on something I can wear 3 months of the year.

And a side note: I think if you're having to layer 2-3 heat techs at a time at -20C, you're probably not wearing appropriate outerwear.

Pussies.

The last time I got a day off for school was in like 2nd grade when the governor closed schools statewide for extreme cold. Oh, and once I got a 2-hour delay in high school because the busses were having trouble making it through a few feet of snow.

Or we don't spend money on salt trucks throughout the winter because it would be a fucking waste of money?

You'll be fine...

I wear my moto probably Sept - mid Dec, March - May without too much issues. If it's your ONLY jacket maybe you'll have trouble and it also depends how long you're outside for. I'm wearing my TOJ0 today with just a scarf and a beanie.

They're saying that this year is supposed to be a bad (read: good) winter, which I'm rooting for since I ordered a fishtail.

I mean I understand the argument--its cheaper to just cancel school/let the city shut down occasionally than it is to maintain a fleet of snowplows and sand/salt trucks.

But you guys get shit cancelled in the kind of weather where they wouldn't even call in the plow drivers. I'd hapilly drive my mother's front-wheel drive VW golf (no snow tires either) all over MN in the kind of snow that gets everything around DC shut down.

Well that's because people don't have experience driving in the snow and there would be accidents. And the time that we did get snowed out was for a week straight (2 times) and there was like 8-12 inches of snow. We had no snow plows or ice trucks ready to deploy immediately so we were kind of fucked

I was stuck in Ireland once with an inch or two of snow and the whole country ground to a halt for like two days.  When you have no salt already on the ground + drivers inexperienced to winter conditions it's completely different.

Exactly--Pussies smile.gif

(although they are pussies who live somewhere where they can wear a ToJ year round if they really want to).

Haha, this is just going to turn into a semantics discussion and I would much rather talk about how glorious TOJ is

My school was cancelled once because they thought it would snow that day. It didn't.
