Residents of the 6ix may have been hit by Toronto's heaviest snowfall to date in November in over three decades last night, but that didn’t stop them from making the most of it. The city was transformed into a winter wonderland on Monday night, and with it came all the perks and disadvantages of a fresh coating of snow. Flights were canceled, hundreds of car collisions were reported, and snow angels were made as the city attempted to readjust to an earlier than usual winter.
However, despite all of the annoyances and misery that come along with 15 cm of snow, there is also quite of bit of fun to be had, and Torontonians were quick to take advantage of that. It was also way more next level than you’d expect.
Hilarious videos of Torontonians having the time of their lives in the snow began popping up on Twitter on Tuesday morning.
In one clip, a man can be seen snowboarding in a parking lot while being pulled by a car, and although I don’t recommend it for safety reasons, it does look pretty awesome.
In another video, a man was spotted swimming in an outside pool in the middle of the snowstorm, which might be the most Canadian thing I have ever seen.
You will always have the story of how you went swimming in an outdoor pool while it was snowing! No need to mention… https://t.co/89E5vsCmAE— 🏒- CG (@🏒- CG) 1573491111.0
Other videos capture residents of the 6ix cross-country skiing to work or just kicking back and making a few snow angels to pass the time.
One resident of the 6ix was even spotted unicycling down the snow-covered streets.

It's wholesome to see a bunch of people rallying to make the most of snow. It almost makes you remember when you were a kid, and you looked forward to having a white Christmas.
It was reported on Monday that western Toronto regions like Oakville and Burlington could get a whopping 15 to 25 cm of snow, while Hamilton was estimated to be in for a truly incredible 30 cm.
Temperatures are also expected to drop into the minus teens Tuesday night with a wind chill near -20 C.
