EVENING ON THE ESPLANADE
Record-breaking Toronto storm drops 126mm of rain, causing blackouts, flooding and transit chaos
Monday evening’s record-breaking rainfall continues to wreak havoc on Toronto’s morning commute with subway and GO train delays, road closures, and power outages in the west end of the city Tuesday.
By midnight Pearson airport had officially seen 126 mm, a single-day record for Toronto. The previous single-day record for rainfall was set at 121.4 mm in 1954. The average rainfall for the entire month of July in Toronto is only 74 mm.
“We had 90 millimetres of rain within an hour and a half at the airport,” said Peter Kimbell, a meteorologist at Environment Canada, who said the storm ranked among the most intense rainfalls the city has ever seen.

[…] The move came after a Star investigation of carding data showed officers were stopping and carding black and brown individuals at disproportionately high rates.
The analysis also showed that between 2008 and mid-2011, the number of young black and brown males aged 15 to 24 documented in each of the city’s 72 patrol zones was greater than the actual number of young men of colour living there. […]
cheesefags: SAGE DERBY. from Chris’ Cheese-Mongers at St. Lawrence Market. by Jordaan & Kyle
Derby is a British cheese that’s like cheddar, but usually younger. It doesn’t go through the “cheddaring” process where blocks of curds are stacked to expel moisture. Sage derby is made by mixing curds with sage leaves and sometimes green corn or spinach juice. Wikipedia says marigold leaves or parsley can also be used.
Anyway, this cheese is real tasty. The texture is crumbly, and is somehow dry and moist - it’s like it has the texture of a dry cheese but isn’t. It simultaneously melts and crumbles in your mouth. Nice.
Has a really interesting flavour profile. It starts out like a medium sharp kinda old cheddary cheese, but then makes this steady transition to having a really refreshing herby flavour. It’s not like a havarti where you taste the cheesiness and there’s just some herb or jalapeno or whatever shit in it, it really all just works as a unified flavour. And the herby flavour isn’t totally sagey, it’s just a sort of fresh, leafy flavour. And that flavour doesn’t take over, it just transforms the cheese flavour into something lighter. For a heavy cheese, you really don’t notice how much you ate…
