Over 16-inches of snow fell across the region Sunday night into Monday morning, causing hundreds of area schools to announce those two words that every kid dreams of: snow day!

As of Tuesday, Huron Schools were still closed due to the conditions of side streets and gravel roads.

Huron High School Principal Donovan Rowe tweeted about the closure of the High School on Monday evening:

While some either hibernated or began the long process of digging their way out, others were out in the elements getting the most out of the white fluffy stuff that some either love or hate.

The sledding hills at Willow Metro Park in New Boston were busy with action on Feb. 2, just hours after a massive snow storm brought the Metro region to a halt.

Don’t put those snow boots and shovels away just yet. Starting Tuesday evening at around 8 p.m., an “Alberta Clipper” will make its way through our region, dropping an additional 1-3 inches of snow. It won’t be much, but already snow covered roads will become more dangerous to navigate on.

Windchill forecasts for Wednesday night into Thursday morning will also reach extreme level. According to the National Weather Service, we could see -10 to -20 windchills with actual temperatures near zero degrees. Back roads around the township will be icy for now.

Do you have any “fun in the snow” photos that you’d like to share? Email them to, or you can post them on our Facebook timeline. We would love to feature them in future stories.
