On the heels of what was, for many in southern Ontario, a white Christmas, some communities again saw substantial snow blanket the area on Boxing Day.

Cold winds – making it feel colder than -10 thanks to the wind chill – blowing over the still largely-unfrozen great lakes triggered bands of lake-effect snow that stretched deep inland from Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, with some as well off of Lake Erie.

That brought significant snow to the usual snow belt communities on top of what fell on December 25th, along with rough surf along the lake shores. Below is a selection of shots from social media of what it looked like to the Ontarians caught in it.
