Tonight, we are experiencing out first real Blizzard of the season. The wind gusts are supposedly reaching 120 km. Which lead me to a suprising discovery, early in the season before your stink pipe freezes, your toilet acts as a excellent baromter (of sorts). You see as the wind whips past your stink pipe it creates a vaccuum, which causes your toilet level to drop, when the air is released in the toilet the level returns to normal. Which means at this moment I am having rapidly ebbing tides in my toilet bowl. So the moral of the story is, If your locked in a room in the north, with no windows and doors but just a toilet, you can still tell when you don't want to go outside.
