OTTAWA, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- Severe winter storm is hitting eastern Canada Monday, giving the residents there the first taste of the normal harsh weather that they have not seen this year.
An early-morning bout of freezing rain blanketed much of the southern Ontario in ice, canceling school buses and giving thousands of kids across the province the day off.

"We can finally say in Canada that winter has arrived everywhere," said Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips. "Everybody's had a taste of it."
He said this has been the longest delay of winter weather in eastern Canadian history and one of the warmest winters in North America, despite the harsh weather in western Canada.
