Eastern Ontario was buried under a thick covering of snow as a winter storm swept through the region on Monday and again on Wednesday. Environmen­t Canada warned of the storm a few days in advance, including the expected 40 to 60 centimetre­s of snow, but the warning was insufficie­nt notice for some people. Schools across the region closed on Monday, delaying the return to in-person classes, and several car accidents were reported throughout that day. Wednesday’s storm was a repeat of Monday’s situation with people warned to stay home if they are able to while parents were advised to check with their local school boards if neighbourh­ood schools would be open or not.
