Here are before and after shots of Hwy. 400, looking north towards the King Sideroad interchange, in King Township. What was being touted as "Snowmagedon" sort of fizzled. Last night, while waiting to be snowed-under and having little else to do, I looked up the origin of the word snow in my Chambers Dictionary of Etymology. The word snow has been around since probably before 1200 and was developed from Old English (before 830) snaw, which is descended from the same original language or root as Old Frisian, Danish and Middle Low German sne, Old Saxon and Old High German sneo, Middle Dutch snee,Old High German sneo, Old Icelandic snaer and snjor, Norwegian and Swedish sno, and the Gothic snaiws, from the Proto-Germanic snaiwaz. Gognates from elsewhere or outside of Germanic include the Irish snechtae or snechte, Old Prussian Snaygis, Russian Sneg, etc., etc., etc., just in case you were wondering.
