After a week of snow, blowing snow and MORE blowing snow I think everyone in Dufferin has had enough! The weather conditions have forced dozens of drivers in Dufferin County out of their vehicles and into temporary shelters one week ago we we even had more than 400 people sent to warming centres throughout Dufferin.
Firefighters and police rescued so many from the wintry conditions that cut visibility on the roads and threatened to trap folks inside of their cars.
Have you even been in a situation were you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face? Well, people on the roads literally didn’t know where they were, they were LOST in the snow! To be quite honest I’ve driven in some really bad conditions and it’s extremely scary situation because you don’t know if someone is going to run into the back of you or rear-end your car. You really don’t know what to do.
Since friday Highway 124, Country road 11, Hwy 10 north of Shelburne have been closed on and off all week. Ok, hold on! Hwy 124 has been closed for 5 days and counting.
Below are some of the photos I have taken in and around Shelburne and Dufferin County during that time. In some of the photos the drifts are twice the height of my car if not 13 to 15 feet!
VIDEO of what it CAN be like to drive in this.
