See that building in the top right? That's part of a mall.

The biggest horse racing track east of Ontario (Sackville Downs) used to be there until it was replaced by said mall ("Downsview Mall") in the 1970s.

That's why my neighbourhood has horse racing street names.

It is -9 degrees here, snowing hard, and feels like -18 with the wind chill. And it's not going to be any warmer than -5 all week.

I'd take a few traffic jams in trade for the weather.

Hey.. how long is your commute to work on average? I'm guessing 1hr 45mins to 2 hrs? I know it jams up pretty good between the 57 n 605 on the 60.

Cookie cutter homes. Luckily the front of our houses look very very different.

Lately, because of the time change and rain, it's been taking three hours to get home. Good times!!

I avoid the 60 because it's terrible and instead take combinations of the 91, 57, 405 and 605 to and from work. If things are really bad, I may take a few surface streets as well. At least I'm getting to know the lay of the land in Fullerton, Anaheim, Garden Grove and Long Beach quite well. I actually think I've figured out how to get from my house to work without taking freeways but won't attempt it (that would probably take four hours and I'd no doubt get stuck behind a train, a broken signal, road construction, etc.).

But Dave, yes, the weather generally makes living here worth all the other headaches.

LA looks like hell, from an aerial perspective, to be honest

I remember flying into LA one time from Phoenix and as soon as you get past the desert all you see is subdivisions. For like an hour. It was honestly disgusting. Awful transit system, awful traffic, and the smog was appalling.

I'm intolerant of commuting, though, so I've always paid a premium to live very close to school/work rather than waste my time driving around. I figure my time is worth something.
