Spring officially arrived in New Brunswick at 8:44 this morning and not a moment too soon for most.

The winter of 08-09 will go down as a cold, although less snowy one, than the previous winter.

It seemed like there was a lot of snow but what fell starting in December didn’t melt due to the frigid weather in January and the first half of February. 

Snow depth peaked at 60 cm in mid-February and today stands at about 12 cm.

Forecasters are suggesting spring ’09 will be warmer and drier than normal.
