I believe that is the Ontario Power Generation building, although I might be wrong.

I can't believe the snow that has built up around your apartment building. Funny little hills.

The glass building is indeed the Ontario Power Generation Building although they occupy, I think, only two floors now. Most of the floors are rented out. Employees have been moved to either the Pickering offices near the nuclear plant or to the Mississauga offices. I believe they only have HR/Payroll in this building.

What cute little snowdrifts. I like the pictures, but I really get the impression that most Torontonians have no clue what a real Canadian winter is like. But I suppose you get lake effect storms once in a while that at least keep you more winterized than Vancouver. I remember one storm in PEI that dumped over 105cm (41 inches) of snow, and another one in Nunavut that left 25-foot high snowdrifts in the middle of town. It's pretty bad when you wake up to the sound of a snowmobile on your roof. It's even worse when they have no clue they are on your roof.
Or, things like this, where the mountain in the background is not all that clear due to snow reducing visibility, despite the image being taken only 50 feet above sea level and 150 yards from the ocean. Note the time stamp.

EvilGentleman - that sounds very, very cold. Deadly cold. Would you do a holiday house swap with some desert folk? An extreme-exchange of some kind?
I'm very happy in my 'Warm temperate Western Margin' as my Geography teacher told us (basically, the UK would be quite cold if it wasn't for warm air channelled to us by the Atlantic)

EvilGentleman - The storms we get nowadays in Toronto are not really severe, nor do they put our city at a standstill like everyone likes to pretend. I think people took advantage of the moderate amount of snow to have a day off from work, etc. I remember much larger snow storms from my childhood and overall, more snow every winter when I grew up here in the 1980s. We used to build huge snow forts and I even recall one winter when my dad flooded the backyard and built us an ice rink that lasted the whole winter long. That is barely possible now because winter isn't cold throughout - and snow doesn't accumulate like it used to.
