Watches and warnings have been lifted for southern Ontario, but not until many areas saw another pile of snow fall.

The second major snowfall to blanket the region in a week had people in the hardest hit areas shovelling another 20 to 30 centimetres of the white stuff.

Snow banks in the Mount Brydges and Strathroy area were among the deepest, with many areas west of London taking the brunt of lake effect snow that began Wednesday afternoon.

Slick roads made driving a challenge, with cars and trucks ending up in the ditch on major routes like Highway 402.

And while november snows are nothing new in the region, seldom has the accumulation been so large and likely to stick around.

Still, some are looking on the bright side, finding ways to have fun in the snow.

And others say they can't get enough snow, like Jake Friesen, whose last name is pronounced freezin'.

"I love it. Bring it on, bring it on. We are in Canada right, let's have some snow....Yeah, it's kind of in my blood right?"

Environment Canada ended the last snow squall warning, which was in place for parts of Huron County, early Thursday afternoon and there is no significant snow event in the forecast for the next few days.

Early open for Boler Mountain

All that snow means skiers and snowboarders will be able to hit the slopes at Boler Mountain on Friday night.

It is the earliest opening for the company in over 25 years.

Along with the big snowfalls, officials say cool nights have allowed snow-making teams to get the hills ready.

Coupled with a late closure last season, the early opening could mean six full months of skiing at Boler Mountain this year.
