- An Alberta Clipper, combined with lake
effect enhancement created chaos in Toronto, including a full
shutdown of the Don Valley Parkway, the main north-south artery
out of downtown. At first, I was teamed up with The Weather Network
to help report on the storm, but on my way home afterwards, I
found myself caught up in the middle of the highway chaos. It
was like a post-apocalyptic scene. Snowplows couldn't clear the
highway, people had run out of gas in the gridlock, cars were
abandoned, and people were walking on the highway. I was also
experiencing car battery trouble in the middle of it all, so
I was struggling to keep my car from stalling. It was like a
scene from a move.
- In total, between 33 to 38 cm of snow
came down in the metropolitan area.
