Freezing rain blankets Toronto roads and sidewalks

Do yourself a favor and stay away from any unsalted surfaces in Toronto right now, unless of course you like things like pain, embarrassment and bruises.

The freezing rain warning issued by Environment Canada on Monday ahead of this morning's icy commute has been cancelled for Toronto, but the weather outside is still pretty nasty.

The sun has disappeared again after an all-too-brief visit, which sucks, and reports of collisions on the roads in and around the city suggest that conditions are also hazardous.

"Attention, Toronto. Freezing rain is expected this morning. Roads, bikeways and sidewalks may become icy and slippery," the City of Toronto warned shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday.

"Slow down if driving and keep a safe distance from #CityofTO anti-icing vehicles."

Walking to work or school has been a challenge for many today, according to Twitter activity, thanks to slippery surfaces.

School buses have been cancelled in most parts of the region, but children who are able to get to class still have to contend with icy playgrounds and parking lots.
