Bill, I was living in Ft. Erie for the blizzard and teaching at Ft. Erie high school at the time.
I drove home after the school closed at noon, but ended up going back in at 2:30 when I heard there were still a lot of students stuck there - when I went to go back in the streets were already 2 1/2 feet deep, and I skied in on cross-country skis!
we were stuck in there with a lot of students for over a day, until the heating rads all froze up and they had to evacuate everyone because of loss of heat - we all got taken out by snowmobile because it was the only vehicles able to get around.
Snow depths around Ft. Erie were phenomenal!
Street around corner from my wife’s aunt - when they started clearing snow off streets they found one car sitting on top of another - snow packed so hard driver drove right up on top of another vehicle.
After storm ended, one teacher living near the lake went to find a house where radio reports said someone had left a dog behind - they walked up a small drift to see if they could see anything, and found they were standing on the roof of a 2-story house along the lakeshore!
A snowmobiler out to deliver medications to a country address stopped and climbed up on a post to try and see a house - he found the “post” he was standing on was the top of a hydro pole!
