Snow, snow and more snow… it seemed like it snowed at least once every few days in Greater Moncton during the month.
As it turns out, Environment Canada records indicate January 2011 was the snowiest in the region since 1987.
The snow often came during a big temperature swing from extreme cold to mild weather.
Cold weather did settle in around mid-month and stuck around for more than a week.
