The sun shone for a bit Monday afternoon, glistening off the snow at the entrance to Robinson Park on Russell Street, Kincardine

An snowstorm blew in Sunday night, meaning the first "snow day" for students in the Kincardine area Monday.

The heavy snow and high wind caused Highway 21 to be closed, from Port Elgin through to just north of Goderich, Sunday evening. The highway remained closed all night, with the final section - between Amberley and Kincardine - opened at 7 a.m. Monday.

Bruce County Road 86, from Amberley to Wingham, was also closed Sunday night.

Kincardine residents woke up Monday to about a foot of snow in their driveways. All school buses were cancelled and motorists had a difficult time getting to work first thing in the morning.

The noise of snowblowers could be heard on nearly every street as people cleared driveways, shovelled out their front doors and steps, and brushed great piles of snow off their vehicles.

The snow and cold continued throughout the day, with a bit of sunshine. The forecast is for warmer weather later this week.
