Mild weather that quickly turned to ice on Sunday chewed up a dock on the bay as shown in this photograph by Dan Haigh.

Cathy Caley is relieved about a good ending to a situation late Sunday night on County roads 18 and 12 where high winds downed part of a tree and hydro wires were arcing.

“It happened beside our place. We are so thankful for the police officers, firefighters, volunteers and hydro men who came so quickly,” she said. Power was back on soon after midnight.

Wind warnings have ended but could return Monday evening and a snow squall watch remains in the County for the evening and overnight.

Ontario Province Police officers are urging drivers to clear snow and ice off of vehicles following several complaints from drivers who have been the recipient of pieces of airborne slabs of ice crashing onto their vehicles. No injuries were reported, however, there is also concern airborne ice has the potential to cause secondary collisions as well as shatter windshields.
