we drove into toronto late afternoon early evening. the road conditions were bad and sound like they were getting worse. the 401 was covered in black ice from past oshawa almost to ajax. (thats where we got off the 401) tires were spinning at 5km on the flats...
take some extra time and leave earlier, leave lots of room for the car infront of you... you don't wanna crash on the way to get some snakes and not get there at all. and take your time getting home, you don't wanna crash after you get your snake and have him/her freeze to death.
it took us 4 hours to do a 2.5 hour trip so that gives you an idea what the roads were like today (saturday) and we haven't had the worst of the storm yet.
