Mississauga’s community by the lake has never looked quite so… on ice.
Youtube user Zarvaan Bacha posted a video to their channel on January 17th, showing some eye-catching aerial shots of a partially frozen Port Credit.
Take a look here:
In addition to freezing cold temperatures, the 17th saw one of Mississauga’s biggest snowstorms ever, with as much as 45 cm of snow dumped on many parts of the city — the most the area has received in a single day since 1944, when the city was known as Toronto Township.
In describing the winter storm that slammed Mississauga and the rest of southern Ontario as a near-record event in the city in terms of snowfall, Mayor Bonnie Crombie praised Mississauga winter maintenance crews for their “round-the-clock” efforts in clearing the snow from major and secondary roads.
“It was truly an all-hands-on-deck effort,” Crombie said, noting no major roads were closed due to the historic storm and only several MiWay buses became stuck in snow.
