Here's an article about January 28, 1977 and the weather's impact of the day:

Forty years ago Saturday, a winter weather bomb exploded over southern Ontario. The event and its aftermath have gone down in weather lore as one of the worst snowstorms seen in these parts.
Those who lived through it have vivid memories of a blizzard that left behind an incredible amount of snow in a short period of time. They recall howling winds and Minnesota cold that, for a solide week, paralyzed Brant, Norfolk, and Haldimand counties and much of southern Ontario.
There was no Internet for the public in the 1970s-radio and tv stations plus newspapers were the main sources of news beyond what the neighbours knew from others by phone.
Another blizzard article-look at how high the snow is in the photos!
