Old Man Winter appears to have struck a nerve between two older Guelph women.

Guelph Police say a fight broke out between the duo after one allegedly flung snow at the other.

The pair were digging out from Tuesday’s snow storm, shoveling snow away from their vehicles in the parking lot of their Waterloo Avenue apartment.

Police say a 61-year-old woman was upset about where the other was placing the snow and then allegedly tossed snow at the 71-year-old woman with her shovel.
