This Day in History Entry #310

January 14th, 2015 by Wordsman

Poor Toronto’d been brought to a halt
By a vigorous winter assault
Though some called it an “Oops”
Lastman summoned the troops
Armed with shovels and blankets and salt

Event: Toronto mayor Mel Lastman calls in the army to help dig out the city following a horrific blizzard
Year: 1999
Learn more: North American blizzard of 1999
