Seems so far away but who could forget the army getting called in to battle the snow…
This day in history in 1999, a massive storm hit southern and central Ontario and dumped more than 100 cm of snow in some places.
Seven people died while shoveling snow.
The storm crippled Toronto, prompting former Mayor Mel Lastman to call in the army.
It was also the worst snow storm in the U.S. Midwest in 30 years.
