That’s an April weekend that we won’t soon forget.
As predicted, we had just about everything thrown at us Saturday and Sunday with more on the way on Monday.
Much of the region received heavy snow on Saturday followed by periods of freezing rain, ice pellets and today, a little more freezing rain to ice the cake, followed by periods of rain and/or snow.
In fact Environment Canada saying we could see another couple of cm tonight into tomorrow.
Road conditions are not good.
Major routes are slushy and wet but the back roads and side streets across much of our region are tough slogging with heavy slush and ice to maneuver through.
Tens of thousands of people across southern and central Ontario had no power as of Monday morning.
Hydro One says crews are working on reconnecting about 40 thousand customers while Toronto has 20 thousand.
In most cases its power lines and poles downed by high winds or ice coated tree branches.
There were a few small pockets through Grey Bruce mostly in the Kincardine and West Grey area.
Provincial police report up to 15 hundred collisions over the two days while more than 600 flights were cancelled at Pearson.
All buses across Grey Bruce were cancelled Monday morning as well giving kids a three day weekend.
And as the snow continues to come down, things are expected to get a little worse before they get better.
