As temperatures climb a few degrees above freezing for a few hours on a sunny afternoon in early March, residents of Toronto slowly get ready for their spring thaw after months of unrelenting deep-freeze. Still wearing their protective battle clothes, tightly held bodies can relax a bit, as faces become visible again. The resolutely impatient can be seen in shorts, a proud Canadian tradition especially among tough young men. For the realistic, patient, or simply unphased rest the winter wardrobe remains the uniform of choice. Because tomorrow may be the next sideways snowstorm.
