'Nuisance snow' slows Toronto's commute
Drivers and transit users struggled with a slow commute after a fresh layer of snow blanketed the city.
CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland said that while Tuesday's snowfall wasn't massive, it was enough to make things difficult for drivers.
"We're not talking about major snow for the GTA, but we are talking about more in the way of nuisance snow, just a few centimetres is all it takes to snarl traffic," he said.
The Toronto area saw some five centimetres of new snow on Tuesday. Flurries are expected to continue into the evening according to Environment Canada.
Roads were slippery enough to cause problems during the Tuesday morning commute. A driver slid into a fire hydrant at the corner of Jarvis Street and King Street early Tuesday. The accident caused water flood the intersection, creating a mess that took two hours to clear.
