Winter storm blasts Borderland

Ol’ Man Winter arrived with a vengeance here yesterday, bringing with it about 13 cm of snow and wind gusts exceeding 60 km/h.

The wet heavy snow snapped trees and power lines across the district, and forced most highways to close for at least a few hours due to slippery conditions.

Stacey Angus, Melissa Brant, Rebecca Cornell, and Angie Teeple represented all of Northern Ontario against five other regional teams from southern Ontario.
