Rumble / Time LapsesHave you ever had a dream of being trapped in a large space and the further you seek for an escape route the more you get lost? You then wake up and thank goodness that it was only a dream, but the lingering feeling tells you that you wish you’d never get into such a situation.

This fear could be interpreted as claustrophobia, the fear of being in small spaces or cleithrophobia, the fear of being trapped both of which can cause an anxiety attack and panic. These phobias aren’t an uncommon thing and there are multiple seemingly ordinary situations that can cause them, like getting locked inside a small bathroom or fearing you’ll get trapped under snow during the winter snowfalls.

There is something about snow that just makes us incredibly happy. It’s like falling asleep at home in your bed and waking up on the other side of the wardrobe in Narnia. The snow hides many wonders and the infinite possibilities of snow games make it extremely enticing. Although the cold that is associated with this white goodness can make us humans love it a bit less, it seems that other animals don’t quite have the same reaction.

Warding off the cold in the wintry months can be a hassle. You never know whether the twelfth layer of clothing is enough, or do you maybe need another one. But this is no problem for furry animals who are energetic and active and have a thick coat of hairs that are specifically created to keep them toasty warm. Now, this predicament lets us do one or two things. We can either stay at home and watch our pets gaze longingly through the window, or we can get our wintry panties on, and additional thirteen layers of clothes, and let them out to play a bit.

This video is a beautifully captured snowfall that covered the streets of Toronto on February 12 following a winter storm that forecasters expected to leave between 15 and 25 centimeters of snow and ice pellets on the ground. Instagram user @79.outlaw posted this timelapse footage from a drive around Toronto’s whitened streets.
