GREATER TORONTO AREA – It’s a winter wonderland in Toronto, with the city bracing itself for yet another snowstorm! Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning, and the snow is expected to come thick and fast, with up to 6 cm of the white stuff coming down every hour.
While many are skeptical of Environment Canada’s weather reporting, one man who has been pretty on point this year? Niagara’s “Angry Beekeeper”.
Lee Moore, also known as The Angry Beekeeper, has gained popularity on TikTok with his weather reports, which are often correct. Moore relies on the activity of his hive to determine the weather forecast.
In a video posted Thursday, Moore confirmed that he agrees, there is snow on the way.
“The bees have nothing to say because they are all clustered up nice and tight in anticipation of some serious weather tomorrow guys,” Moore explained, showing the hive with no bees swarming outside.
“Some areas might even see 30 cm, most areas will see 20 cm or even less, and it’s going to be mixed with some ice pellets,” he continued, adding that Friday’s commute home will be a tough one for drivers.
Ontario Loves The Angry Beekeeper
Online, people can’t get enough of Moore’s reports.
“You and the bees have been right about the entire winter! You and the bees should be reporting the weather on TV,” posted one TikTok viewer.
“I think you should make them say something… we don’t need more snow,” joked another.
“Thanks for solidifying this for me…you’re the only weather person I trust.”
He may be called “The Angry Beekeeper”, but don’t let the name fool you, the Beekeeper considers himself a pretty jovial guy.
“When I talk to people and I talk about bees and nature and the weather I think I get excited and I tend to raise my voice and it sounds like I’m yelling,” he explained in another video.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow
Federal officials are warning of significantly reduced visibility due to heavy and blowing snow, which will create some risky travel conditions starting this evening and continuing into Saturday morning.
“Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow,” reads an Environment Canada release.
The snow starts coming and it won’t stop coming, or whatever Smash Mouth said. Let us know in the comments, are you a fan of the winter weather? Or are you team summer?
