Pedestrians, watch your step on slick sidewalks!
And drivers, remember that you’re in a nice warm bubble while walkers hobble along a moonscape.
Otherwise, the city’s traffic centre was silent Wednesday morning, with most school buses running and OC Transpo was reporting relatively few cancelled trips.
One choke-point was the westbound Queensway near Bayshore.
The biggest traffic tie-up so far was south of Ottawa.
A crash closed the westbound lanes of Highway 401 at Highway 2 near Gananoque with a detour at the Thousand Islands Parkway. Police reported the area was clear by about 9 a.m.
By 8 a.m. there were half a dozen fender-benders across the region, but no reported injuries.
